Narrated by Karen Chilton.
Weaving together American history, dramatic family chronicle, and episodes of memoir, Annette Gordon-Reed provides a historian's view of the country's long road to Juneteenth, recounting both its origins in Texas and the enormous hardships that African-Americans have endured in the century since, from Reconstruction through Jim Crow and beyond.
