To Make Our World Anew

Volume I: A History of African Americans to 1880

Edited by Robin D. G. Kelley and Earl Lewis

The two-volume To Make Our World Anew integrates the work of eleven leading historians into the most up-to-date and comprehensive account available of African American history. This first volume begins with the story of Africa and its origins, the Atlantic slave trade, and the forced migration and enslavement of between ten and twenty million people. It covers the Haitian Revolution and slave rebellions and resistance in the United States in the years leading up to the Civil War. There are vivid accounts of the Civil War and Reconstruction years, the backlash of the notorious "Jim Crow" laws and mob lynchings, and much more.
