Synopsis

This illuminating and important study charts the role and impact of African peoples in American and world history. "Becoming American: The African American Journey" aims to enlighten its readers to the pivotal role that peoples of African descent have played in shaping America and the world. It features two side-by-side chronological timelines that uniquely contrast the major events and personalities in both African American and Global/African Diasporan history - spanning from 4 million BCE to Barack Obama's momentous presidential campaign. In addition, carefully chosen political, historical, cultural and literary texts, quotes, speeches and songs document the impact of black presence in American and world history.
