Overview

Charlottesville: The African American Community is a visual history of African-American life in a unique Virginia city. This exciting new work by author Agnes Cross-White focuses on black families, neighborhoods, social organization, business life, and religious life from the 1900s to the 1960s.

With over two hundred vintage images gathered from the archives of the historic Charlottesville/Albemarle Tribune and from family collections, Charlottesville takes readers on a journey honoring the steps the black community made in its early years after Emancipation, when social and economic confines within the sharecropping system made it necessary for African Americans to develop their own institutions.
