The African

American Odyssey
From the Preface
“One ever feels his two

ness
,

an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled
strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body.” W. E. B. Du Bo
is, 1897
. . .
T
he African

American Odyssey
tells the story of African Americans a story that begins in Afri
ca,
where the people who were to become African Americans began thei
r long, turbulent, and difficult journey,
a journey marked by sustained suffering as well as perseverance,
bravery, and achi
evement. It includes the
rich culture

at once splendidly distinctive and tightly intertwined with a br
oader American culture

that
African Americans have nurtured throughout their history. And it
includes the many

faceted quest for
freedom in which African Americans have sought to counter white
oppression and racism with the
egalitarian spirit of the Declaration of Independence t
hat American society professes to embody.
Nurtured by black historian Carter G. Woodson during the early d
ecades of the twentieth century, African

American history has blossomed as a field of study since the 195
0s. Books and articles have appeared on
almost every facet of black life. Yet this surv
ey is the first comprehensive college textbook of the African

American experience. It draws on recent research to present blac
k history in a clear and direct manner,
within a broad social, cultural, and political framework. It als
o provides thorough covera
ge of African

American women as active builders of black culture.
