Timetables of African-American History: A Chronology of the Most Important People and Events in African-American History
From the first African communities in North America to the days of slavery, from the aesthetic achievements of the Harlem Renaissance to the political triumphs of the civil rights movement, from Harriet Tubman's creation of the Underground Railroad to the election of Carol Moseley Braun -- the first black woman senator -- in 1992, this comprehensive book illuminates African Americans both famous and little known.
Thousands of entries document historical moments, laws and legal actions, and noteworthy events in the areas of religion, the arts, sports, education, and science and technology. The varied accomplishments of black Americans come to life in brief profiles of Louis Armstrong, Salt-N-Pepa, Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin, Joe Louis, Wilma Rudolph, Paul Robeson, General Colin Powell, and hundreds of others.
