To Make Our World Anew

Volume II: A History of African Americans Since 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 second volume covers the crucial post-Reconstruction years, the migration of blacks to the major cities, the remarkable Harlem Renaissance, the hardships of the Great Depression, struggle for Civil Rights in the 1950s and '60s and finally, the emergence of today's black middle class. Here is a panoramic view of African-American life, rich in gripping first-person accounts and short character sketches that invite readers to relive history as African Americans have experienced it.
