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.

    Going Home For Christmas

    This title was purchased as a gift for my Mother's First Cousin, a High School graduate from Charlottesville in 1957. This title was the hi-light of our Christmas Eve festivities as we discovered not only our cousin, but our uncle, Grandmother's picture and a host of other familiy friends and events from our family's past. The book itself was inclusive of the total African American past of Charlottesville from the fraternal organizations, churches and schools, social events, prominent families, deaths and historic events. In our views, it could easily been issued as a 500-page photo essay. Subsequently, additional copies have been ordered, as this title will be included in our annual Family Gathering. (Wesley / Gof(f)ney). When will Tuscaloosa, Alabama be issued ?

    A Pictorial Look At Charlottesville's Black Community

    This book gives a pictorial history of the Charlottesville black community prior to integration. It depicts and describes that city's black professional and non-professional community. It also-through the eyes of the(TRIBUNE) community's black newspaper-chronicles key leaders of Charlottesville's black community prior to de-segregation. Many of those leaders are now deceased or no longer living in the immediate area. If anything, this book would serve as a 'letter' from home to any black that may reside somewhere other than his or her hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia. An excellent addition to the library or book collection of anyone interested in Charlottesville's black community from the early fifties to late eighties and nineties.
