Black America, due to its popularity, has been released in another edition written by movie and television writer, Marcia Smith. Thanks to a partnership with Real Times Media, the Chicago Defender and The Michigan Chronicle, which contributed photos from their extensive archives, Black America is a 400-page book filled with striking and expansive images that document the African-American experience starting from slavery and the Civil War to the modern era and the presidential inauguration of Barack Obama.
Bear witness through vivid imagery as this book takes you on a journey through the hope of Reconstruction, the ambition of the establishment of the NAACP, the frustration of Jim Crow and the perseverance and tenacity of Blacks who moved north to find better jobs and lives. The pictures inside of Black America speak a thousand words as it shows African-American achievements through the images of Jackie Robinson, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Halle Berry and many others.
