Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"Lewis summons back the spirit and substance of New York City's black center during its best years," said LJ's reviewer (LJ 3/15/81). The author traces the history of blacks in Harlem from 1905, when they began moving uptown, to the riot of 1935. Another natural for Black History Month, this "gem of a book" remains "highly recommended."
