Description: Celebrating the spirituality, courage, and intellectual achievements of African Americans, "Autobiography of a People" is the first anthology to effectively trace the history of the African-American experience -- from the Middle Passage to Emancipation, from the Civil War to Vietnam, from Little Rock to the Million Man March -- in the words of those who were there.

The book boasts an astounding roster of important historical and intellectual figures, writers and religious leaders, such as Phyllis Wheatley, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., General Colin Powell, and Angela Davis, as well as a generous selection of riveting accounts from ordinary people. The misery of slavery, the bloodshed of several American wars, and the struggle for civil rights are just some of the pivotal experiences described in vivid detail throughout the book. Linked by editor Herb Boyd's informative narrative bridges, these powerful voices from the past and present combine to create a compelling portrait of how African Americans have survived -- and shaped -- some of the most important events in U.S. history.

A monumental achievement, "Autobiography of a People" brings African-American history to life in all its tragedy and triumph, in a brilliant testament to the black experience in America.
