Summary
This book deals with the trials and triumphs of a group of Americans whose roots in the American soil are deeper than those of the Puritans who arrived on the celebrated Mayflower a year after 'a Dutch man of war' deposited twenty Negroes at Jamestown. This is a history of 'the other Americans' and how they came to North America and what happened to them when they got here. The story begins in Africa with the great empires of the Sudan and Nile Valley and ends with the Second Reconstruction which Martin Luther King Jr., and the 'sit-in' generation are fashioning in the North and South
