It is widely recognized that American history consists not of a single, unitary narrative, but of many narratives shaped by race, gender, and ethnic origins. The African American Years is a companion to Charles Scribner's Sons chronology of U.S. history The American Years, second edition.

Whereas that reference work examined U.S. history in its entirety, The African American Years focuses specifically on the history of African Americans from pre-colonial times to the present.

This timeline is enriched by overview essays, sidebars, and primary sources - poems, memoirs, legal documents - and more than two hundred images that chronicle the story of African Americans and create a portrait encompassing its struggles, triumphs, complexity, and exuberance.

Features include a comprehensive index; sidebars spotlighting specific people and topics; approximately 250 images; and a bibliography.
