This illustrated celebration of Black history begins with prehistory and goes to the present. In it, readers will discover the rich and complex history of the peoples of Africa, and the struggles and triumphs of Black cultures and communities around the world. It features eye-catching, informative, and interesting timelines, diagrams, illustrations, pull quotes, and sidebars. The book covers the African struggle against European colonization, the Atlantic slave trade, the Harlem Renaissance, Black feminist movements, and Black Lives Matter, as well as many other topics that have been overlooked in mainstream U.S. history textbooks. “Readers of all levels will enjoy the aesthetics, content, and presentation of this encyclopedia that so aptly captures the rich history of Black culture.” ~ Library Journal
