Chapters of the book encompass: (1) the integrated curriculum and the teacher; (2) new materials in the classroom, including a basic teacher reference library, teaching goals, daily planning, committee work and dramatization, use of original source materials, outside reading, audiovisual aids, special events such as trips, and evaluation procedures; (3) Major units in American Negro history, including a bibliography of Africa and the slave trade, colonization of the New World, birth and growth of a new nation, the Westward movement, the South during slavery, development of the free North, the Civil War, Reconstruction, growth of industry and labor, the last frontier of farmers and cowboys, reform and progress era, World War I, the Depression and the New Deal, World War ii and after, and the Civil Rights Revolution; (4) sources of inexpensive or free materials; and, (5) reading lists on race, and lists of libraries and museums of Negro history.

The Black West : a documentary and pictorial history of the African American role in the westward expansion of the United States by William Loren Katz( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American West: no period in our history has defined and shaped us more as a nation. Unique to the U.S., the Old West exerts a power on the American imagination that can still be seen in almost every aspect of our culture. Sadly, as is the case with most other periods, historic acknowledgment of the African American contribution to the West is either totally nonexistent or nowhere near complete. In The Black West, historian William Loren Katz corrects the record in words and pictures, showing that, from the journeys of Lewis and Clark to the charge at San Juan Hill, African American men and women exerted an influence beyond their numbers in the discovery and definition of the American West. - Back cover
