✨✧ Mark WhitakerSmoketown – The Untold Story Of The Other Great Black Renaissance ... Book
Simon & Schuster, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
An overdue look at the rich African-American cultural heritage of Pittsburgh – the city that gave the world jazz musicians Erroll Garner, Billy Strayhorn, and Mary Lou Williams; playwright August Wilson; two great Negro League baseball teams; and the important black paper The Pittsburgh Courier! This rich history is covered here in fantastic detail – really showing us a side of the city that's often obscured behind its image as a steel producer and working class town – and the portrait painted here is as vivid and detailed of any we've seen of Chicago, Harlem, or Philly during their glory days. 404 pages, softcover, with some black and white images. Book
(Spine has a small remainder mark.)
