Atlas of the Week-The African-American Atlas

The Atlas of the week The African-American Atlas is very relevant to our class and to the University of Richmond. This Atlas chronicles significant points in African-American history that have influenced African Americans’ perspectives, lives, and aspirations today. This well-balanced account of the complex African-American society and its people who suffered and continue to struggle is presented in this extensively illustrated reference book, which spans the beginnings of Africa to the transatlantic migration, from slavery to the Civil Rights Movement. This connects to our class because the past couple of weeks we have been giving light to black cartographers and looking at their maps. While also the University of Richmond students have been removing names associated with racism from dorm buildings.
