Bookpage brings together an historical trilogy in celebration of Black History Month. As noted, “these books share common themes: the struggle for freedom, the quest for equality and the achievement of these goals with the help of a great leader.” Freedom National, by James Oakes traces the origins of the Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation; Rawn James Jr.’s The Double V looks at the nation’s military conflicts, and the role of African-American soldiers; and The King Years, Taylor Branch chronicles Martin Luther King Jr.’s fight for equality during the Civil Rights era.
