Aptheker was a Marxist historian who was blacklisted in academia during the 1950's because of his membership in the Communist Party. He became one of the foremost champions of the developing study of African-American history. This book, one of the earliest he wrote, became the basis for a 7-volume set presenting the documentary history of the Negro people in the US. Aptheker was a major American historian, somewhat slighted because of his Communist activism. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 942 pages; Signed by Author
