In 1001 short, eminently readable essays, Jeffrey C. Stewart, Associate Professor of History at George Mason University, takes us on a journey through five hundred years of African American history. Every important aspect is covered, from the possible discovery of America by Africans to the recent Million Man March. 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About African American History is for anyone who wants to learn more about the significant but often overlooked role that African Americans have played in American history. Within six broad sections (Great Migrations; Civil Rights and Politics; African Americans in the Military; Culture and Religion; Invention, Science, and Medicine; and Sports), Dr. Stewart describes both the well known and the obscure, from landmark Supreme Court decisions and the importance of African American midwives to Marcus Garvey”s Black Star Line, and why Granville T. Woods is known as the black Edison. Accompanied by over 150 photos, drawings, posters, etchings, and other visual matter, the book conveys the drama and scope that make African American history such an inspiring subject.
