Many important moments in history have not been taught in schools or explored in the mainstream media. These events often include people of color and involve Black history. This "whitewashing" of history, intentional or not, puts all Americans at a disadvantage. Learn about Black history moments that shaped America, from the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Virginia in 1619 to the Freedom Summer of 1964, and read about efforts to reshape how we teach Black history in schools in the 21st century.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Discussing issues of great importance, the Fight for Black Rights series (6 titles) traces Black Americans' past and ongoing struggles for civil rights and equality, and it presents the tools available to help affect change. Hidden Black History addresses how the stories and achievements of Black people have often been ignored in the teaching of history and suggests ways to incorporate Black experiences and voices through Black-created art, such as books, movies, and television. Short, clear chapters are accompanied by black-and-white and color photographs and illustrations that show persons and events referred to in the text, with yellow boxes highlighting important individuals and asking readers thoughtful questions to inspire discussions. A time line of events and list of recommended websites and books are included in each title. A well-organized and timely series."
