Mr. Silberman an instructor at Columbia University and former writer for Fortune Magazine provides in this one book more IMPORTANT details about the American experience and building of America going back to the 1600s, better than most Americans received in their entire educational experience, ESPECIALLY the very essential involvement of Africans and African Americans.

Keep in mind I went to school in the U.S. both K-12 and college. I have met Europeans with whom I have had extensive conversations

Unbiased American history centered around African Americans! He explains the major events in America leading up to current day while focusing on the African Americans part in it...great book in my all-time top 10.

this was a powerful book I was in amazement while reading it This book was written in the 60s and us black people or negros still face the same problems and issues as back then Mr Silberman breaks down many issues from politics down to education and tries to explain the defects from the white side and black side great book a great history lesson.

Read this in grad school in the '70s. At one time I was asked to name a book that impressed me the most. This was it! Sadly, now I don't remember much about it.
