The Negro in Our History. [1928, Fifth Edition]


Important textbook for generations of African Americans which went through numerous, well-illustrated editions. Carter G. Woodson is considered the “Father of Black History” and the purpose of his book was to present the “history of the United States as it has been influenced by the presence of the Negro in this country.”

ANB —“Woodson founded the Journal of Negro History, which began publication in 1916, and established Associated Publishers in 1921, to publish works in black history. He launched the annual celebration of Negro History Week in February 1926, and had achieved a distinguished publishing career as a scholar of African-American history…” 

An excellent copy of this book, typically found in worn condition, especially among the earlier editions.
