Description
In the tradition of Eyes on the Prize and Vietnam: A History, Africans in America is a riveting and unsettling book about slavery, America's Achilles heel. It is the companion to PBS's major fall 1998 offering, a four-part, six-hour series created by an award-winning documentary team at WGBH in Boston.

Africans in America retells the familiar story of our founding -- from the landing in Jamestown to the Civil War -- from a new perspective: the Africans, who carne in shackles, created the agricultural foundation and wealth of this nation, believed the language of the Declaration of Independence, watched as perpetual slavery was sealed into the Constitution, and then forever bore the yoke of racism. Told from the African-American point of view by the brilliant Patricia Smith and peppered with unforgettable short stories by Charles Johnson, Africans in America is riveting narrative history and a powerful antidote to schoolbook history as we were taught it.
