Description
"A well-written evocation of 'the common hopes and loves and labors' of African-American men and women in [Newport and Saratoga Springs], and it is a solid social history that makes a firm case for both similarity and local distinctiveness among urban black communities before the Great Depression." -- Andrew Wiese, Journal of American History "Armstead has written a compelling urban history in which she places the experiences of blacks in the resort towns of Saratoga and Newport within the context of the larger African-American community. . . . Well written and researched. . . . Illustrated with breathtaking photographs." -- Lillian Serece Williams, American Historical Review "This book is a genuinely interesting read. Any Saratoga history buff would enjoy it." - Judy Meagher, The Saratogian
