Summary

An accessible guide to the key milestones in Black history, culture, and society across the globe - from the ancient world to the present

Discover the rich and complex history of the peoples of Africa, and the struggles and triumphs of Black communities worldwide.
With profiles of key people, movements, and events, The Black History Book brings together accounts of the most significant ideas and milestones in Black history and culture. This vital and thought-provoking book presents a bold and accessible overview of the history of Africa and the African diaspora - from the earliest human migrations to modern Black communities.
Powerful images and innovative infographics bring to life the stories of the early kingdoms of Ancient Egypt and Nubia; the powerful empires of the Medieval and Early Modern eras; and the struggle against European colonizers. Black history beyond the African continent is also explored in detail - including the Atlantic Slave Trade and slave resistance settlements; the Harlem Renaissance and Jazz Age; the "Windrush" migration; Civil Rights and Black feminist movements; and Black Lives Matter.
Using the "Big Ideas" series' trademark combination of authoritative, accessible text and bold graphics, The Black History Book examines the achievements and struggles of Black people up to the modern day, as well as the influence of Black cultures on art, literature, and music worldwide.
