About the Book
Congress prohibited slave trading in 1808, Lincoln University was chartered in 1854, Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and in 1916 Carter G. Woodson published the first issue of Journal of Negro History—all on January 1 of their respective years. This is a day-by-day guide to African American achievements and those happenings that have affected their history, including the birth dates of many significant men and women. The people and events are drawn from all walks of life: politics and government, civil rights, sports, entertainment, journalism, court decisions, writers and others. The work is fully indexed.
