Product Description:
Culled from the records of the National Register of Historic Places, a roster of all types of significant properties across the United States, African American Historic Places includes over 800 places in 42 states and two U.S. territories that have played a role in black American history. Banks, cemeteries, clubs, colleges, forts, homes, hospitals, schools, and shops are but a few of the types of sites explored in this volume, which is an invaluable reference guide for researchers, historians, preservationists, and anyone interested in African American culture. Also included are eight insightful essays on the African American experience, from migration to the role of women, from the Harlem Renaissance to the Civil Rights Movement. The authors represent academia, museums, historic preservation, and politics, and utilize the listed properties to vividly illustrate the role of communities and women, the forces of migration, the influence of the arts and heritage preservation, and the struggles for freedom and civil rights. Together they lead to a better understanding of the contributions of African Americans to American history. They illustrate the events and people, the designs and achievements that define African American history. And they pay powerful tribute to the spirit of black America. Review:
This engaging resource contains information about 800 black historic sites in 42 states, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. Often, they are places where people lived, such as the Paul Laurence Dunbar House in Dayton, Ohio; or the Blanche K. Bruce house in Washington, D.C., home of the second black man who served in the U.S. Senate. But there are also schools, hospitals, clubs, colleges, forts, cemeteries, and more. The listings (organized alphabetically by state), include brief descriptions and addresses, making this useful for those curious about black historic sites in their town or state or for anyone planning a vacation tour of historic sites.
