This brief book is a loving look at the many kinds of African-American entertainers who passed through Baltimore from 1930 to 1980. It documents the musical heritage of a black urban population. Even local officials and radio personalities are proffled, along with everyday patrons who attended these entertainments. The reader is given a detailed picture of the black music scene in a large eastern seaboard city over half a century. All in all a vivid panorama of black nightlife.
