About the Book

Black America since MLK…

In 2013, the great scholar and public intellectual Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. astonished the country with The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross, his 'magisterial” Emmy Award winning film and best-selling book chronicling the first 500 year history of Africans in the “New” World.

As America's first African-American President approached the end of his second and final term in office, Dr. Gates returned with a new film and book, And Still I Rise: From Black Power to the White House, a portrait of the African-American experience in the 50 years since the passage of the landmark 1965 Civil Rights Act.

Now, Easton Press presents a unique edition of this acclaimed illustrated chronicle: And Still I Rise, an exclusive leather-bound Collector Edition personally autographed by Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

The African-Americans experience from “Black is Beautiful” to “Black Lives Matter.”

Beginning in the epochal year of Malcom X's assassination, the Civil Rights Act, and the birth of “Black Power,” this lavishly illustrated chronology takes readers year-by-year through a half-century of explosive social and political changes for African-Americans and America.

These pages record a period of astonishing progress during which African-Americans attained the highest positions in business, culture, and politics – including the Presidency, an achievement unimaginable a generation ago. But it was also the age of white “blacklash” and the “New Jim Crow,” of African-Americans continuing to be trapped in poverty and attacks on affirmative action.

Chronicling hard-won triumphs, notorious racial flashpoints, and thrilling cultural benchmarks, And Still I Rise asks such vital questions as, why is there such a dichotomy in America's treatment of African-Americans? What is the African-American “community” in the new century?

Comprehensive, objective, nuanced, and thought provoking, And Still I Rise is a stirring celebration of how far America has traveled – and reminder of how far we have to go.
