Nationwide -- The new book Black American History, from Plantations to Rap Culture is a must-read for readers who may have an avid interest in the origins of Black music in various genres, especially rap music. "At every stage of their integration on American soil, Black people have created the kind of music that reflected their social and economic integration as well as their state of mind," writes internationally acclaimed author Pascal Archimede, about his latest book.

Black American History, from Plantations to Rap Culture, or black America explored through its institutions and artistic productions. Widely accessible, this story of millions of American citizens is told from their first steps in the New World to today through a cultural prism both original and essential. From the transatlantic slave trade to the ecclesiastical pillar, through abolition, school and politics, this work suggests reading the African- American music as a succession of existential movements. The author analyzes the codes of this extraordinary art, which has always been the highest form of testimonials of Men's earthly passage. What challenges did black Americans have to face when they created blues, jazz, rap?

Pascal Archimede embarks us on a timeless journey between past, present and future; between identity and captivity; between disappointment and progress towards the liberation of a Nation.

"For this book, on the academic side, I focused my research on the link between the evolution of black people on American soil and the various types of music that they created," says Archimede during a recent interview. "On a personal side, I am from Guadeloupe, a French speaking island in the Caribbean and I'm aware that our fate is linked to the Afro-Americans' one. Our common ancestors who were brothers, sisters, cousins, parents, relatives, were massively deported from Africa on the same boats and were dispatched on various lands. So we all got isolated geographically, culturally, spiritually and linguistically. Those are the reasons why I got interested in writing down this book."
