From Slavery to Emancipation to Renaissance to Racism to Rebirth, this book illuminates the struggle of Black People in America. This is a must have for people of all races, for in this story of struggle, others will surely see their own, and gain a better understanding of humankind. The Black Experience In America by Norman Coombs "This volume depicts the immigrants from Africa as one among the many elements which created present-day America. On the one hand, they differ from the other minorities because they came involuntarily, suffered the cruelties of slavery, and were of another color. All of this made their experience unique. On the other hand, they shared much in common with the other minorities, many of whom also felt like aliens in their new land." From the Preface of The Black Experience in America.
