Hippocrene U.S.A. Guide to Historic Black South
Historical Sites, Cultural Centers, and Musical Happenings of the African-American SouthBook - 1993
The Black South, areas chock-full of historical and cultural landmarks of African-American significance, should not be considered just offbeat, road-less-travelled sections of the more traditional South, but the foundation of its very existence. The purpose of this book is to document and highlight the significant contributions that Southern blacks have made to their country. The Historic Black South includes historic sites, churches, museums, art galleries, festivals, restaurants, nightclubs, jazz joints, birthsites, gravesites, radio programs, record stores, barbershops, beaches, parks, schools, and markets -- the essence of the black communities.
