Check out these selections, and more, from my favorite book publisher, Arcadia Publishing @ http://www.arcadiapublishing.com/theme/African-American
The books are written by local historians, and are illustrated with vintage photos and postcards.
"... Featuring vintage images of African Americans, each book celebrates the culture and communities of African Americans through historical images and descriptive captions.
From Negro League baseball to the growth of black colleges, from Kinloch, Missouri, to Tallahassee, Florida, and the exploration of cultural, socioeconomic, political, and community events, vintage images give readers an engaging visual tour of African American life that traditional historical textbooks often fail to show. ..."
