INTRODUCTION
This endeavor is an attempt to show how the events and flow ofAmerican history affected and were effected by Black people. It iswritten from a Black perspective. It is hoped that the reader willdiscern trends and patterns, such as, how Black folks were co-opted to deal with certain events and issues and were ruthlesslydiscarded when they were no longer beneficial (e.g. reconstruction,populist movement, and all of the major wars). It should also benoted how the Black population enlarged in certain areas of thecountry as laborers were needed (e.g. the ante-bellum south, thenorthern ghettos during the world wars).Moreover, as population patterns changed, so too did life styles.Notice how the ghettos gave rise to new Black art and culture (e.g.big city blues, rhythm & blues, jazz, poetry, essays, etc.). Also, itshould be ascertained how the growth of the northern Blackpopulation affected the politics, sociology, and economics of thecountry.In addition to this, special attention should be paid to the cause andeffects that the economy and economics of the times had on Blackfolks.It is hoped that this undertaking can provide for teachers andparents basic reference material for helping to include the causes,effects, and contributions of Black folk throughout American history.We have not tried to profile any persons, but rather dealt withtrends and social phenomena.Realizing full well that this work is not all encompassing, it is hopedthat a desire to further investigate the African American's historywill be induced into the reader.
