From Slavery to Freedom, A History of American Negroes. (Signed)
Significantly expanded from the first edition. Inscribed and signed by this historian and civil rights activist. John Hope Franklin’s “most important book, From Slavery to Freedom, [was] a survey of African American history that revolutionized the field. The book would be translated in Japanese, French, German, Chinese, Spanish, and other languages and would sell more than three million copies. It catapulted Franklin to prominence, while making it possible for African American history to be taught outside of historically black colleges and universities.” (ANB)
