An essential volume for all who care about the black freedom struggle
Freedom on My Mind records the paradoxical experiences of African Americans, who are at once central to the creation of our nation — in terms of their long history in America, their vital role in the American economy, and their enormous impact on American culture — and at the same time consistently denied access to the American dream. Juxtaposed against American history as a whole, this is a study of people who have had to fight too hard for freedom yet have been systematically excluded from many of the opportunities that allowed other groups to experience the United States as a land of opportunity. This text will give you the resources to think critically and analytically about African American history and the historical realities behind the American dream.
