Civil right history not equal to black history

The title 'Black History' is not necessarily the best title for such a book. A better title is 'Black civil right history.' Nothing was mentioned about black contributions in science, arts and innovation. To me, the book examines more the negative and weaker aspect of black history.

I learned a lot in an hour

I truly enjoyed this bite sized piece of black history. The book takes us from the beginning of slavery right through to the end of the civil rights movement in America and its aftermath. Just one bad point, every time the narrator put on an American accent I cringed, deeply. Can someone please tell him never to do that again please? Thank you.
