Before the Mayflower: A History of Black America
Justly celebrated by readers and scholars, the Black history classic, Before the Mayflower, has been called "one of the most popular single-volume histories of Blacks ever written".
The paper edition continues the Mayflower tradition with new photographs and material. A major bonus is the extensive use of color photographs. The much-copied "Landmarks and Milestones" section consists of significant dates and events from the fourteenth century to the twenty-first century. The new section is essentially an outline of Black history and is a handy and invaluable reference tool for students, teachers and readers of all races and colors.
