Organized chronologically, the volume uses the Civil War to divide the book into two parts: part one addresses the enslavement of children in Africa and explores how they lived in antebellum America; part two examines the issues affecting black children since the Civil War and into the twenty-first century.

Two, Civil Rights is important not just for African-Americans, but for all Americans Prior to slavery there wasn't really African history in America. History books could, and probably should, cover more African history. This has some problems though.

Two, Civil Rights is important not just for African-Americans, but for all Americans. If you read World War II histories you will find many times people would challenge Americans with the treatment of African-Americans. These days, not so much. We have gone from a nation where white guys were the unchallenged kings of the world to one that is much more balanced. Prior to slavery there wasn't really African history in America. A lot of African history does not relate to American history the way that European history does.

The post–civil rights era in African-American history is defined as the time period in the United States since Congressional passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968, major federal legis.

Africans in America solves this problem by showing a variety of different images that, pieced together, present a sturdy mosaic of endurance under suffering. They bring the history of slavery and blacks in America to the attention of a far larger audience than the printed word can reach, and do so without any glaring inaccuracies. On the other hand, the series reveals African Americans as far more than passive victims of white oppression, men and women who struggled to make the best of the admittedly grim circumstances in which they found themselves and thereby helped shape their own world.

Slavery in America started in 1619, when the privateer The White Lion brought 20 African slaves ashore in the British colony of Jamestown, Virginia. The crew had seized the Africans from the Portugese slave ship Sao Jao Bautista. Did you know? One of the first martyrs to the cause of American patriotism was Crispus Attucks, a former slave who was killed by British soldiers during the Boston Massacre of 1770.
