Gates provides an updated version of the 1957 edition of this book, clarifying, updating, and enhancing it, as well as replacing some of the invalid information. Narrator Dominic Hoffman's deep and raspy voice serves as the perfect voice to capture Gates's writing. The importance of African-American communities to our nation (and for the world at large) comes across in the Hoffman's voice--he vocally communicates the gravitas of these figures and moments. From the first Africans to come to the Americas to hallmark moments by African-Americans in science, finance, literature, and political history, Gates recounts a deep and rich history, parts of which are still ignored even today.
