Waldo E. Martin, Jr.


"Freedom on My Mind is by far the best textbook on African American history that I have ever read."
— Stephanie Camp, University of Washington

"The authors do an excellent job bringing the African American experience to the classroom. This textbook will do much to show students that blacks were not one-dimensional players on the stage of American history."
— Rita Reynolds, Wagner College

"The book has great flow and pacing and is true to its mission: to present the relationship between African American history and broader American history. At every turn one can see the interplay between standard American history and the unique circumstances, accomplishments, and contributions of African Americans to the story of America."
— Marilyn Howard, Columbus State Community College

“I find the integration of the documents in the text to be such a good idea and so conducive to classroom use."
— Peter Kuryla, Belmont University

"This is a very fine book. The introduction is excellent. It was helpful for me in honing my own thinking about the Brown case and should be invaluable to students at all levels. I was particularly impressed with the way Martin analyzes the historical context and the long-term implications of the NAACP’s integrationist approach."
— Lynn Dumenil, Occidental College
