The struggle of black Americans has been going on since the mid-XNUMXth century and plays a fundamental role in establishing the political, historical and cultural values ​​of contemporary America.

FREEDOM! is the historic cry, against slavery, against segregation and against social injustice of thousands of people who arrived in chains from Africa by boat as early as the 600th century. The book that bears this name brings together XNUMX images, mainly in black and white, of decades photographed by anonymous or famous photographers, witnesses or defenders of the black cause.

Organized in 5 chronological chapters retracing long pivotal periods, FREEDOM makes it possible to document and understand the advances and setbacks of black history, inextricably linked to the North American continent: the period from 1840 to 1880 shows the slaves' living conditions, then the abolition of slavery, from 1880 to 1919, migrations to the city and social inequality still existing, from 1919 to 1954, urbanisation and the great depression, from 1954 to 1975, the great movements for civil rights and finally from 1975 to the present day, the maintenance of the struggle and the hope.

FREEDOM is a sumptuous book, which stands out as a reference, as an illustrated and complete book on a still topical subject that we now embrace at a single glance, thanks to Sophie Spencer Wood's work, photo editor at Phaidon. Manning Marable and Leith Mulling are the two authors of the remarkable introduction, chapters, captions and timeline in the appendix. Black American and committed themselves, they are respectively a historian, professor at Columbia University and an anthropologist at the Graduate Center of the City of New York.
