The history of Harlem in the 20th Century – told through a wealth of vintage images and newspaper snippets – all laid out beautifully to present a vivid portrait of this uniquely American community! The subject matter varies a lot, especially as the years go by – and by taking straight snippets from the press, Allon Schoener manages to present Harlem's history through a shifting set of lenses – portrayals of the community that change greatly over the space of decades – showing a growing voice and empowered sense of identity, even as struggles increase and get more mainstream attention. The oversize book is softcover, 258 pages, and has almost as many vintage images as it does text!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
