For one-semester or two-semester survey courses in African American history as a primary text, and in U.S. history survey courses as a supplementary text.
With the proliferation of introductory courses in African American history, a single collection of primary documents for use in the classroom has become essential. This accessible two-volume text reflects both the recent trends and the enduring political and social themes regarding gender and culture in African American history. It is the only collection of primary documents that covers the entire span of African American history.
"AFRICAN AMERICAN MOSAIC: A DOCUMENTARY HISTORY FROM THE SLAVE TRADE TO THE TWENTYFIRST CENTURY provides an important new collection of sources in black history. The strength of these volumes derives from the diverse selections brought together by Bracey and Sinha, including many rarely-excerpted documents and voices that illuminate the experiences of black women. This fresh and lively work will undoubtedly promote spirited discussion among students and teachers." Darlene Clark Hine, Michigan State University, co-author of A Shining Thread of Hope: The History of Black Women in America and president of the Southern Historical Association
"No one has ever assembled a richer nor more expertly edited collection of primary documents for African American history than Bracey and Sinha. These are not merely brief excerpts, but carefully prepared selections of the great texts that transport the reader into the experience of Africans and African Americans in the transformation from slavery to freedom. The famous narratives are here; but also some deft choices such as the three clauses about slavery from the Constitution and the three versions of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. All teachers of African American history should adopt this volume." David W. Blight, Yale University, author of Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory
"Ranging over four centuries of African-American life, and combining well-known and relatively obscure documents, and the voices of the prominent and the anonymous, this collection offers an outstanding introduction to the black experience in the United States. Eric Foner, Columbia University, author of The Story of American Freedom and former president of the American Historical Association.
