African-American history is the part of American history that looks at the history of African Americans or Black Americans

African-American history is the part of American history that looks at the history of African Americans or Black Americans. Of the 1. million Africans who were brought to the Americas until the 1860s, 450 thousand were shipped to what is now the United States. Most African Americans are descended from Africans who were brought directly from Africa to America and became slaves. The future slaves were originally captured in African wars or raids and transported in the Atlantic slave trade.

Nevertheless, African Americans have made basic and lasting contributions to American history and culture. As Americans of African descent reached each new plateau in their struggle for equality, they reevaluated their identity

Nevertheless, African Americans have made basic and lasting contributions to American history and culture. DuSable Museum of African American HistoryA discussion of the DuSable Museum of African American History in Chicago, from the documentary Riches, Rivals & Radicals: 100 Years of Museums in America. Great Museums Television (A Britannica Publishing Partner). As Americans of African descent reached each new plateau in their struggle for equality, they reevaluated their identity. The slaveholder labels of black and negro (Spanish for black) were offensive, so they chose the euphemism coloured when they were freed.

African-American history is celebrated and highlighted annually in the United States during February, designated as Black History Month. At first the Africans in the South were outnumbered by white indentured servants, who came voluntarily from Britain. They avoided the plantations. Although previously marginalized, African-American history has gained ground in school and university curricula and gained wider scholarly attention since the late 20th century.

In the two generations following the first emancipation (1780-1850), black Bostonians fashioned a rich and complex communal life. Levesque tells their story, including work experiences, class divisions, the founding of churches, schools, self-help organizations, the community's leaders, and the ferment for reform. He analyzes in detail the community's infrastructure, including its size, location, the age and sex composition of its inhabitants, and the births, marriages, mortality, pauperism, crime, and mental health of the population.
