Summary, etc.:
The history of African Americans in the United States is one fraught with discrimination and immense brutality, but also with strength and a determined spirit. In this book, readers learn the history of African American migration in North America, which is a topic supported by elementary social studies curricula. Readers will understand the push/pull factors involved in African American migration from the South and into Northern cities and the cultural developments that followed. Topics such as slavery and segregation are explained through age-appropriate language. Historical photographs and primary sources encourage readers to visualize history.
