ARGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Not you but the quality of the answers thus far. This is the HISTORY section if a person does not know anything about history they should go elsewhere!
Anyone who likes History KNOWS THat the best source for African-American American Studies is Eric Foner.

http://www.amazon.com/Give-Me-Liberty-American-History/dp/0393911918/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1359848224&sr=1-1&keywords=eric+foner
""Eric Foner is the pre-eminent historian of his generation. Foner is highly respected by historians of every stripe—whether they specialize in political history or social history. His books have won the top awards in the profession, and he has been president of both major history organizations—the American Historical Association and the Organization of American Historians. He has worked on every detail of Give Me Liberty!, which displays all of his trademark strengths as a scholar, teacher, and writer. A specialist on the Civil War/Reconstruction period, Foner regularly teaches the 19th century survey at Columbia University, where he is DeWitt Clinton Professor of History. His latest trade title, The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery, won numerous awards including the Lincoln Prize, Bancroft Award, and the Pulitzer Prize. ""

"From one of our most distinguished historians comes a groundbreaking new examination of the myths and realities of the period after the Civil War.

Drawing on a wide range of long-neglected documents, Eric Foner places a new emphasis on black experiences and roles during the era. We see African Americans as active agents in overthrowing slavery, in shaping Reconstruction, and creating a legacy long obscured and misunderstood. He compellingly refutes long-standing misconceptions of Reconstruction, and shows how the failures of the time sowed the seeds of the Civil Rights struggles of the 1950s and 60s. Richly illustrated and movingly written, this is an illuminating and essential addition to our understanding of this momentous era.""
