Author Releases New Book That Explores Black History Like Never Before

Emancipation Proclamation by James C. Rollins

Nationwide — Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Emancipation Proclamation 2nd Edition: the True Black History by James C. Rollins, which is the author’s most recent book to date. The 6 x 9 black & white paperback in the Education / History category is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble for a suggested retail price of $24.95. The web page at OutskirtsPress.com was launched simultaneously with the book’s publication.

African Americans searching for the African roots of their culture should begin by understanding that only about five percent of between 11 and 12 million enslaved Africans were brought to North America or the United States. By 1619, the first African indentured servants arrived in the American colonies. The first slaves were brought into New Amsterdam (later, New York City). By 1690, every colony had slaves. The African population that came over as slaves had begun to reproduce itself by the 1730s through the creation of the African-American population that were called Creole Blacks.

These Creole Blacks were the first African Americans, and their process of bridging African and American worlds is what is refered to as creolization. African-Americans Creoles, born after the 1730s, a mixture of European white slave owners and Africans, were unlike their ancestors in many respects because they were born in America. African-American-born of the Creole population became dominant after 1820 because African-American culture begins with this Creole population.

This book is well written while covering such a wide variety of topics that each entry is interesting and enlightening. There was an excellent job of covering a large period before the Emancipation Proclamation and after, in a clear and concise manner. It definitely gives the readers food for thought, and they’ll still be thinking about this book and its revelations long after they’ve read the last page.

Deftly constructed at 158 pages, Emancipation Proclamation 2nd Edition: the True Black History is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Education / History category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Emancipation Proclamation 2nd Edition meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $24.95.

Additionally, Emancipation Proclamation 2nd Edition can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press Direct bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore

About the Author
The author’s history is significant because he was born in 1942, 15 city blocks from the nation’s capital, in a house that had no indoor plumbing (it had an outhouse) nor electricity, and it was heated by a wood stove in the dining room. He was born mid-day, at home, by the mid-wife who was also his grandmother – not in the local hospital (that was 4 blocks away) because it only accepted black patients in emergency. Rollins served in the US Air Force from 1961 (beginning construction of the Berlin Wall, The Cuban Missile Crisis, also known as the October Crisis of 1962, and the Viet Nam war) to 1965. James C. Rollins is a retired D.C. Government civil servant. He is a resident of Prince Georges County, Md. the father of four kids and the grandfather of four super special kids, and great grandfather of two baby boys and a baby girl. He probably was one of the first single parent dads of the 1970s. He attended Antioch University.
