For Martin Luther King Jr.

The Encyclopædia Britannica Guide to Black History. First released to critical acclaim in February 1997, this popular Spotlight has been revised and redesigned with added features, increased navigation, and new and updated articles. Enter the Spotlight through the Eras in Black History, which examines five centuries of black heritage through five distinct time periods, from the slave revolts of early America through the successes of the Civil Rights Movement. Each era is further divided by topic/profession, with biographies and photographs of notable people and descriptions and documents of historic events. The newly added Timeline of Achievements traces the yearly contributions of African-Americans in politics, industry, the arts, religion, sports, and education. In addition, the site can be browsed alphabetically through the expanded Articles A to Z page, which contains links to every article through two lists--Biographies and Events & Institutions. The Encyclopædia Britannica Guide to Black History features 600 informative articles and is beautifully illustrated with historical film clips and audio recordings, as well as hundreds of photographs and other images.
