An African American and Latinx History: An African American and Latinx History of the United States

Paul Ortiz (Author) J. D. Jackson (Narrated by)
Backorder (temporarily out of stock)

Description

Spanning more than two hundred years, An African American and Latinx History of the United States is a revolutionary, politically charged narrative history arguing that the Global South was crucial to the development of America as we know it. Ortiz challenges the notion of westward progress, as exalted by widely taught formulations such as manifest destiny and Jacksonian democracy, and shows how placing African American, Latinx, and Indigenous voices unapologetically front and center transforms American history into the story of the working class organizing against imperialism.
