hardback    ISBN 13: 9780241512982 | ISBN 10: 0241512980

Which were the most powerful African empires? Who were the pioneers of jazz? What sparked the Black Lives Matter movement?
 
This book answers these questions and many more, exploring the rich history of the peoples of Africa and the African diaspora, and the struggles and triumphs of Black communities around the world. The Black History Book provides clear and concise explanations of important events and cultural milestones. It is packed with memorable quotations from Black figures, bold illustrations, and step-by-step diagrams that untangle complex concepts.
 
From the earliest human migrations to modern Black communities, this thought-provoking book presents a vivid overview of Black history. It brings to life the stories of the early kingdoms of Ancient Egypt and Nubia; the powerful medieval and early modern empires; and the struggle against colonization. It also explores Black history beyond the African continent - 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.
 
Continuing the "Big Ideas" series' trademark combination of authoritative text and bold graphics, The Black History Book uses an innovative visual approach to make the subject accessible to everyone, whether you are eager to discover more about Black history, a history student looking to broaden your knowledge, or an armchair reader.
