African-American history is significant and integral to the larger history of the United States. Emboldening this dynamic, the Lucent Library of Black History places important topics in context so that readers will understand the connection between black history and the sweep of America?s story. This high-quality series focuses on both broad movements like Black Nationalism, as well as more narrowly defined events such as Reconstruction.
"'Studying this past and understanding how it contributes to present-day dialogues about race and history in America is a critical component of contemporary education,' states the forward of the Lucent Library of Black History. Each volume focuses on one aspect of African American experience and history that has helped shape American society and inform its citizens' attitudes and beliefs about African Americans. Each volume includes black and white illustrations and photos, a relevant chronology, and an index."
