Anti-Racism in U. S. History: The First Two Hundred Years

Synopsis

Many books, both popular and scholarly, have examined racism in the United States, and the belief that racism has been essentially unchallenged by white people is pervasive. In this unique book, Aptheker, a well-known scholar in the field, examines the existence of anti-racism in this country, covering the period from the 1600s through the 1860s--challenging the view that racism was universally accepted by whites until the outbreak of the Civil War. Covering the period from the 1600s to 1860, this book by a well-known scholar in the field will be of interest to all concerned with U.S. and African American history.
