African Americans in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (Black America Series) by John M. Brewer, Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh Courier

African Americans in Pittsburgh chronicles the distinct trends in this African American community. There was never one centralized neighborhood where a majority of the black population lived, and city schools were integrated until after desegregation laws were passed. Photographs captured by famed Pittsburgh photographer Charles "Teenie" Harris show the candid experiences of residents, including the achievements and celebrations of people struggling to put scraps of food on the table.
