Dream a world anew : the African American experience and the shaping of America( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Museum of African American History and Culture, which opened in September 2016, is the realization of the dream, centuries-long, of creating a public monument to the vital role of African Americans have played in shaping our nation. Dream A World Anew uses objects and stories from this museum, unprecedented, to take readers on a journey through the African American experience. This book presents the sweeping history of Black America: the path from slavery to freedom; the struggle to define and realize that freedom during Reconstruction and The Civil Rights movement; and the swell of major changes since 1968, socially, politically, and economically. As the book moves through this story, it examines such diverse subjects as enslavement, migration, work, gender, global connectivity, and more to unearth the richness and complexity of African American History. By unpacking the best and the worst of the American past, this book inspires readers to ponder moments of pain and tragedy, as well as to understand the resilience and joy at the heart of the African American experience. The book celebrates the extraordinary achievements of both well-known black Americans ---- including the musicians, writers, performers, athletes, and artists who have shaped our cultural identity ---- and the ordinary people who have worked together to establish institutions that expand African Americans' possibilities politically, socially, and economically. Photographs, sidebars, quotations, poems, and profiles of trailblazers and visionaries round out, abundantly, this narrative which is eloquent and engrossing. Dream A World Anew, a definitive history as told by The National Museum of African American History and Culture, shows us that the story of African Americans transcends a single community and shapes all those who call themselves Americans.--Publisher information

"Road to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1968 is the most significant exhibition of civil rights photographs presented in an art musuem in more than twenty years. These images were taken by many photographers - photojournalists, artists, movement photographers, and amateurs alike - all of whom seem to have had a keen understanding of the significance of their subject.

These are the unforgettable images that helped to change the nation, increasing the momentum of the nonviolent movement by dramatically raising awareness of injustice and the struggle for equality."--Jacket
