African American History

From Colonization to Pan Africanism (First Edition)
Edited by Ronald Goodwin

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-60927-793-2, 258 pages


One of the principal challenges facing historians is the interpretation and study of historical events and individuals through the prism of the historian's current reality. African American History: From Colonization to Pan Africanism is a collection of articles that discusses colonization, abolitionism, and Pan-Africanism from the historiographical perspective of three twentieth century movements: Jim Crow, the civil rights movement, and the post civil rights era. This anthology shows readers how historians discussed these movements over time, and illustrates how perceptions of events change, given the experiences of the historian examining them and the world in which he or she lives.

Organized into three major sections, the articles include a variety of insightful primary documents and are arranged in chronological order according to their original publication date. The book begins with colonization, moves through the abolitionism movement, and concludes with an examination of Pan-Africanism.
