The African-American Odyssey reveals the central place of African Americans in American history. The authors present a clear overview of Black history within a broad social, cultural and political framework. They trace the long and turbulent journey of African Americans, the rich culture they have nurtured throughout their history, and the quest for freedom through which they've countered oppression and racism.

The 7th Edition covers key events during Barack Obama's second term, as well as the emergence of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Chapter 11 includes a new section on the Louisiana Native Guards and their Black and white officers. Chapter 15 features a new section on the emergence of gospel music, as well as a new discussion on African Americans' role in the development and growth of horse racing.
