About this book
Autobiography of a People gathers together a chorus of 116 diverse voices to tell the story of the African American experience from the Middle Passage to the dawn of the new millennium.

Famous voices (from Nat Turner and Harriet Tubman to Langston Hughes and Dorothy West; from Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. to Al Sharpton and LL Cool Jay) and ordinary ones (slaves and sharecroppers, poets and politicians, musicians and civil rights workers) mingle to create a great narrative of the spirituality, courage, and intellectual achievements of African Americans. From James Albert Ukawsaw Gronniosaw's early eighteenth-century account of his birth and young life in Africa before being transported to America by slave traders to the Reverend Bernice King's rousing tribute to the power of heritage, here is a shining testimony to a people whose story is America's story.
