epub The Guide to Black Washington epub

by Sandra Fitzpatrick

This remarkable guidenbook details more than 150 sites and institutions that have shaped black history and traditions, both in this particular community and throughout the country. A book to slip into a backpack, keep handy in a glove compartment, or linger over at home, "The Guide to Black Washington" weaves together historical overviews, lively anecdotes, and plenty of practical information. From Library Journal "A different kind of guidebook from two local authors, this describes the homes and haunts of African-Americans. Where did Marian Anderson sing when refused admittance to a Washington, D.C. church? (The Lincoln Memorial.) The authors divide Washington into 15 sections, with brief chapters of one to two pages each. Slavery, segregation, education, and gentrification are discussed in short paragraphs. The book provides offbeat information and would probably be a good source for school assignments. There is an excellent bibliography. Recommended for general readers and high school libraries, though not an essential item." - Fern Sikkema, Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis, Washington, Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.
