The Struggle for Freedom, a narrative of the black experience in America, uses a distinctive biographical approach to guide the story and animate the history.

 

In each chapter, individual African Americans are the pivot points on which historical changes of the era turn. Life stories capture the rush of events that envelop individuals and illuminate the momentous decisions that, collectively, frame the American past and present.  Inasmuch as that history is grounded in struggle"in the consistent and insistent call to the United States to deliver on the constitutional promises made to all its citizens"this book is also an American history text, weaving into the narrative the milestones of mainstream American history, economy, politics, arts and letters.
