More About African Americans and Civil Rights by Michael Levine
 
 
 
Overview
This concise well-written narrative chronicles the struggle for African American civil rights over a period of more than 350 years. Beginning in 1619 when the first African slave ship arrived in America and continuing to the present, the author gives readers a balanced overview of how U.S. laws have prevented blacks from having the same civil rights as others. The text is accompanied by a series of detailed biographical sketches that describe the roles played by many individuals who have worked to advance -- or block -- the civil rights of African Americans. Also presented is the wide range of arguments used by black civil rights activists to further their cause throughout history. This book, which includes a chronology, glossary, and comprehensive bibliography, will help its readers gain a deeper understanding of current racial issues as they study the long and turbulent history of the movement for African American civil rights in America.
