A brief history of the term African American

African Americans have been in the United States since the 16th century. They were brought over as slaves and were made to work on plantations. After the Civil War, many African Americans fought in the Union army and helped to end slavery. However, they were not given citizenship rights until 1948. Black people continued to face discrimination and racism after the war. This led to rebellions and violence, which was addressed by President Johnson with his "Civil Rights Act of 1964." This act banned discrimination in housing, education, employment, and public places.
