Description

In 1619, the first recorded African slaves arrived on the shores of the English colony of Jamestown in North America. For nearly 250 years, African people were treated as property and forced to perform difficult labor, day in and day out. Using many photographs, this title explores the history and culture of the African American people in the years prior to the establishment of the United States.  The freedom sought by so many Europeans who came to America was not shared with many Africans and their descendants.

The brief descriptions in this book tell of slavery as well as the limited freedoms of free blacks. Phillis Wheatley, Jean Baptiste Pointe du Sable, and Benjamin Banneker are among those briefly profiled. It also discusses the end of slavery and the difficulties that African Americans continue to face today
