Publisher Comments:

An award-winning historian's sweeping new interpretation of the African American experience.

In this masterful account, Ira Berlin, one of the nation's most distinguished historians, offers a revolutionary-and sure to be controversial-new view of African American history. In The Making of African America, Berlin challenges the traditional presentation of a linear, progressive history from slavery to freedom. Instead, he puts forth the idea that four great migrations, between the seventeenth and twenty-first centuries, lie at the heart of black American culture and its development. With an engrossing, accessible narrative, Berlin traces the transit from Africa to America, Virginia to Alabama, Biloxi to Chicago, Lagos to the Bronx, and in the process finds the essence of black American life.

Synopsis:

In this masterful account, one of the nation's most distinguished historians offers a revolutionary new view of African-American history.

About the Author

Ira Berlin teaches history at the University of Maryland, where he is a Distinguished University Professor. He has written broadly on the history of the larger Atlantic world, especially on Africa and African American slavery and freedom.
