Summary
Dodson is a leading scholar, writer and lecturer on African-American history, and he has assembled poems, prose, song lyrics and speeches to illustrate seminal moments and achievements within the diaspora. The author, who is also the director of the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture at the New York Public Library, divides this volume into separate sections for the timeline of African-American history (including both global and the US diaspora) and the actual key texts, literary works and records that define this journey. Contributions from such noted African-Americans as Martin Luther King, Jr., Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, James Brown and Maya Angelou are included.
