Mae C. Jemison Exploring the Black Past

In her book, Mae C. Jemison “Exploring the Black Past,” she describes how she learned about the long-standing African American history of the United States. Her own efforts to find the truth about the slave trade, Jim Crow laws, and the Civil War were always met with a multitude of questions. She writes about the difficulties of her search for the truth and explains how she came to the conclusion that the Federal Government was responsible for its perpetuation.

Jemison’s research includes stories of descendants, historical documents, and artifacts from a variety of venues and time periods. In addition to writing about the life of enslaved people in America, Jemison goes on to explain the contributions of African Americans in every field including medicine, law, education, science, military, music, and religion.

One of the most fascinating chapters in the book is an account of her journey through three centuries of the African American experience in the United States. She describes how she went from being born in Africa to a White woman. After the emancipation of slaves in the South, Jemison described how her family endured the pressure of living in a free black community. For her, witnessing the strength and resilience of the American black community is truly inspiring.

Jemison also covers the Civil War. She learned that the institution of slavery had continued for two hundred years in the United States despite the abolition of the trade of slaves. She describes how most Northern and Southern white families held slaves, the occasional kidnapping, and how former slaves held on to the concept of slavery.

Many people are familiar with Jemison’s story, which was presented as a book called The Sun Also Rises. The book was based on her experiences as a self-educated black woman. She received attention both from students and reviewers when it was first published. Jemisonlearned that she had the right to continue the work she started with The Sun Also Rises in more detail with her book, Exploring the Black Past.

In this book, Jemison continues her journey by examining the lives of enslaved people. The difficulties she encountered while seeking answers to many questions about the slave trade and other aspects of black history in the United States is discussed. With the story of the battle of Gettysburg, she explains how the battle was fueled by anger and hate toward the American Civil War. She also examines the role played by enslaved people in the Civil War.

Another chapter in the book focuses on music. She explains the importance of African American music to the war effort and how enslaved people helped the cause.

The chapter titled “The Civilization of Science” explains the role played by African Americans in science. She discusses the contributions of enslaved people to science and how they influenced the development of more advanced scientific methods. It is a highly educational chapter and will be very helpful to scholars and students of science.

In the final chapter of the book, titled “History and Memory,” Jemison explains the impact of her own childhood and her own struggle to see the importance of many events that have shaped the life of black Americans. She writes of how the African American experience has impacted all areas of American history, and how this is a responsibility that each of us has to carry forward. What an amazing journey the author of Exploring the Black Past has taken, from the impoverished plantations in the South to her current career as a Fulbright scholar at Columbia University.

In this way, the book is an eye-opening and unique perspective on the lives of enslaved people in America. It is truly inspiring and offers something to all who read it.
