Spanning more than 200 years, 'An African American and Latinx History of the United States' is a revolutionary, politically charged narrative history arguing that the 'Global South' was crucial to the development of America as we know it. Ortiz challenges the notion of westward progress, as exalted by widely taught formulations such as 'manifest destiny' and 'Jacksonian democracy,' and shows how placing African American, Latinx, and Indigenous voices unapologetically front and centre transforms American history into the story of the working class organizing against imperialism.
