Looking for a good book that gives an overview of the African American experience in the United States. It should be readable, engaging, but also informative.

This would be a book that would be for the teachers at my school to read, so the less encyclopedic, and the more narrative, the better. Its hard to get buy in when something is dry and factual. However, I do want them to get a good working knowledge of the major movements and characters in African American history.
