Description:THE MAP WORKBOOK FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY consists of approximately 25 maps that trace the African experience throughout the world and in America. Accompanied by map exercises and thought questions, each map is designed to strengthen students’ knowledge of geography, as well as their critical-thinking skills. The maps focus on a wide range of topics, covering African American social, political, cultural, and economic history. This workbook provides a useful pedagogical tool for courses in African American history where instructors would like to stress the important relationship between history and geography.
