Black America History Books


Each title in the Black America series features vintage images chronicling the diverse and unique history of African American culture and communities through historical images and descriptive captions.

From Negro League baseball to the growth of black colleges, from Kinloch, Missouri, to Tallahassee, Florida, and the exploration of cultural, socioeconomic, political, and community events, vintage images give readers an engaging visual tour of African American life that traditional historical textbooks often fail to show.
