    I'm a self-professed history nerd, and so I may be a bit biased, but this is an incredible marvel of a collection of writings. It takes a while to parse through, but I read it twice because of the incredible historical timeline, diversity of views and writing samples, and the astounding aspects of American history that the typical American History education completely misses. Thank you, Marable.

    Manning Marable was my professor in college, so I was forced to buy the book for his class. But I'm so happy that it is part of my collection. I still refer to this book today.

    Source documents in African American history. I read this by myself, but I would really like to take a class and read it with a professor's guidance and commentary.
