Title Profile & Character Information

Life upon These Shores

Annotation
Of course you trust Gates, Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard, to deliver an indelible (near-definitive?) history of African Americans ranging from the conquistadores to President Barack Obama. Fresh scholarship and more than 800 images, plus a 60,000-copy first printing; important for most collections.
