The African-American Experience traces the course of more than four centuries of African-American history and culture in one essential volume, from the first slaves brought to the Americas in the 16th century to the events of the present day. Excerpts from more than 300 primary documents - including literature, speeches, editorials, political and social commentary, music, and poetry - record what editor Kai Wright describes in his introduction as the transformation of a people in captivity into a proud community defined by its members rather than its oppressors.
