Riassunto: This exciting series provides students with gracefully written narratives about important aspects of the black experience in the United States. Blending original documents written by participants and observers with an insightful analysis of different periods in American history, each volume provides young readers with an understanding of the broad issues that this country faced as well as the daily struggles of ordinary African-American men and women.Quotations and information from primary sources, historical drawings, photographs, and maps lend immediacy to every narrative and an up-to-date bibliography and detailed index enhance the reference value of each volume.Filled with voices of hope and courage, Journey to Freedom reveals the stories of the men and women who went looking for freedom, dignity, equal rights, and basic economic opportunity up north. Coverage also relates the far-reaching social, economic, and political consequences for the nation as a whole during this greatest internal mass migration of people in American history.
From Booklist: Gr. 7^-12. The greatest internal mass migration of people in U.S. history occurred at the beginning of the twentieth century, as African Americans moved north seeking freedom, equal rights, and financial opportunity. Yet, the great migration did more than change the lives of those who relocated; it forever shifted the political and cultural landscape of the nation. The smooth interweaving of one race's struggle amid general historical (both world wars) and social (the Great Depression) upheavals gives this new volume from the Library of African-American History series an expansive scope. Gliding effortlessly from national trends to individual experiences presented as editorials, advertisements, even poems and sermons, the text offers a balanced look at the hardships of those who suffered lynchings and persecution, those responsible for the Jazz Age, the Harlem Renaissance, and the NAACP. Includes extensive chapter endnotes and a thorough index. Roger Leslie
