  • About the Author

A Choice Outstanding Academic Book of 1996, this moving guide locates significant places in African American history and supplies more recent addresses, phone numbers, and visitor's information than any other source in print. Beyond that, the guide is a valuable historical reference that gives the human context of these heritage sites, and is a moving exposition of the struggle of African Americans toward freedom and equal participation in American society.

On a personal odyssey to connect with her own heritage, distinguished educator Curtis traveled to most of the sites herself to provide rich descriptions, photographs, and anecdotes about many of the people, famous and obscure, who have been integral to African American movements toward freedom and equality.

Nancy C. Curtis
