They are the places where history was made. From stops on the Underground Railroad to the sites where the grand drama of the Civil Rights Movement played out, AFRICAN AMERICAN LANDMARKS tours the nation to tell the story of Black America.
Host James O. Horton, the Benjamin Banneker professor of American Studies and History at George Washington University, leads this extraordinary exploration. The eight stops take us from New York City to Jacksonville, Florida, visiting famous landmarks and overlooked sites, and exploring the significance of each with the help of local experts and other scholars. What emerges is a fascinating tapestry of the African-American experience from the 18th century to the present day.
Moving, illuminating and sometimes surprising, this is a compelling look at an aspect of America's past that is only now getting its due.
