    It's an important book that highlights the voices of those we don't hear about far too much. Author Ortiz takes the reader through what it says on the cover: from the Hatian Revolution to the international effects of the US Civil War, Ortiz gives us a history that is unfortunately sile...

    Powerful re-telling of US history from the bottom up, i.e., through the alliances of Black and brown people. it's a thrilling story, much of which I did not know before. it also gives a perspective as to what's happening now. ...

    This book provides a sweeping introduction to American history from the Revolutionary War era to the present, reinterpreting it through the lense of African-American and Latinx experiences, acts, and thoughts at the times in question. I was expecting something more narrowly-scoped, mor...

    Much like An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States, this book is part of the ReVisioning American History series. Having just finished the former, I was stoked to see the latter on Edelweiss available for download and review, and immediately snapped it up. This book cover...

    This is the second book I've read from Beacon Press's "ReVisioning American History" series, and this one, like the first (Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz's "An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States"), is poignant and contemporary. In our current environment of anti-anything-that's-not...

    It's well-written, but I feel like it's really too brief on its topics. ...

    My only real criticisms of this book lie in its pacing (it feels like they skipped the entirety of the 1970s and barely mentioned in passing the 1980s in order to get to the 1990s and 2000s). I would have preferred the book simply be longer, but I suspect, inferring from foreword from ...

    I already knew we were taught a lot of propaganda and misinformation in school but maybe not how much. With school board elections coming up I'm working on some tough questions to ask about our history courses. I don't want my biracial niece being taught a bunch of nonsense. ...

    A very important historical account of how American racism did not end in the 1960s, like we are led to believe in public high schools around the US. This book is dense, but left me reeling. ...

    The perfect book for these troubling times. It's the history that we never learn about in school. It looks at the African American and Latinx contributions to history and social justice in the United States. It takes a look at over 200 years of American history and how the Global South...
