批評家のレビュー

"Asim's fact-filled account begins with a question in Dion Graham's smooth tones....Graham's rich voice draws listeners into his recounting, while managing to seamlessly integrate the book's many separate 'Get to Know' profiles of individual trailblazers, athletes, and entertainers. A marriage of quality writing and narration makes this an audiobook that should find a wide audience." (AudioFile)  

あらすじ・解説

A comprehensive, entertaining look at heroes, heroines, and critical moments from African American history - from the slave trade to the Black Lives Matter movement - by award-winning author Jabari Asim.  

Jabari Asim goes beyond what's taught in the classroom to reveal a fact-filled history of African American history through politics, activism, sports, entertainment, music, and much more. You'll follow the road to freedom beginning with the slave trade and the middle passage through the abolitionist movement and the Civil War where many African Americans fought as soldiers. You'll learn how slave songs often contained hidden messages and how a 15-year-old Jamaican-born young man named Clive Campbell helped to create hip-hop in the early 1970's. You'll experience the passionate speeches, marches, and movements of the Civil Rights era along with and the sacrifices of Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Medgar Evers, and many others. 

Along the way there are dozens of profiles of political trailblazers like Shirley Chisholm, the first black women elected to Congress in 1968; dominants athletes like Tiger Woods who, in 1995, was only the second African American to play in a Master's Golf Tournament which he went on to win in 1997; popular musicians like Miles Davis, one the most influential artists of the 20th century; and inspiring writers like Toni Morrison, the first African American to win the Nobel Prize in literature. 

Filled with beautiful illustrations by Lynn Gaines that bring these figures and events to life, plus a removable historical timeline poster, A Child's Introduction to African American History is a fascinating and comprehensive guide to this often overlooked yet immensely important part of American history.

A single story...hard to share all viewpoints

This helps to understand but single stories with few WHYs. Sad, awful things to hear...especially children. A good place to start.
