Working Americans 1898-2016, Volume XIV: African Americans is the newest addition to Grey House Publishing's Working Americans series. The African-American struggle and triumph comes to life in these pages, from the Emancipation Proclamation and racial segregation in the 1800s to the the Harlem Renaissance and the Civil Rights Movement to the first African American president, this volume provides real information on what it meant to be an African American from the 1890s to the present day.

Following the format of previous volumes in the Working Americans series, the text closely examines the lives of 27 individuals; including a Blues Singer from the 1920s and a Civil Rights Pioneer from 1961. Each profile is enriched with real data on Income & Job Descriptions, Selected Prices of the Times, Annual Incomes & Budgets, Life at Work, Life at Home, Life in the Community, along with News Features, Key Events, and Illustrations. The depth of information contained in each profile allows the user to explore the private, financial and public lives of these subjects, deepening our understanding of how calls for change took place in our society.

After the 27 individual profiles are several appendices for the reader's convenience. These include a Census Brief Statistics of the Black Population, a snapshot of 2016 African American Statistics, a Further Reading section, as well as a detailed Index.

This brand-new volume is a must-have for the reference collections of high school libraries, public libraries and academic libraries.
