|The African American Family Album, by Dorthy and Thomas
A history of African Americans in the United States chronicles the experiences of many generations, from slavery, through eras of struggle, journeys from the Southern plantations to the West and industrial North, and contributions to American culture. The American Family Album series tells the often heroic stories of American immigrant groups, largely through their own words and pictures. Like any family album, the pages contain period photographs, memorabilia, selections from diaries, letters, memoirs, and newspapers. Each book is a pictorial and written record of the country left behind, the journey to America, and the group's contributions to the United States. 149 illustrations.
