Black Georgetown Remembered

A History of Its Black Community from the Founding of "The Town of George" in 1751 to the Present Day

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

First published in 1991, <i>Black Georgetown Remembered</i> chronicles and celebrates the rich but little-known history of the Georgetown black community from the colonial period to the present. Drawing on primary sources, including oral interviews with past and current residents and extensive research in church and historical society archives, the authors record the hopes, dreams, disappointments, and successes of a vibrant neighborhood as it persevered through slavery and segregation, war and peace, prosperity and depression. <br><br>Completely redesigned, this commemorative 25th anniversary edition features a foreword by Maurice Jackson and more than two hundred illustrations, including portraits of prominent community leaders, sketches, maps, and nineteenth-century and contemporary photographs. Looking back on the past twenty-five years, Kathleen Menzie Lesko describes in a new introduction the impact of this book and its companion documentary video have had and updates readers on recent changes in the Georgetown neighborhood. <br><br><i>Black Georgetown Remembered</i> is a compelling and inspiring journey through more than two hundred years of history. A one-of-a-kind book, it invites readers to share in the lives, dreams, aspirations, struggles, and triumphs of real people, to join them in their churches, at home, and on the street, and to consider how the unique heritage of this neighborhood intersects and contributes to broader themes in African American history and urban studies.
