About this product
- DescriptionIn the second volume of Bridges of Memory , historian Timuel D. Black Jr. continues his conversations with African Americans who migrated to Chicago from the South in search of ecomic, social, and cultural opportunities. Picking up where the first book left off, volume 2 introduces the reader to more members of the first wave of migration and also members of the second generation, the children of those who came in the first wave. In telling their stories, the interviewees paint a vivid picture of the thriving and tight-knit Chicago community formerly kwn as the Black Belt - today's historic Bronzeville neighborhood. They bring to life the role of family, religion, business, music, and, most of all, the hopes, dreams, and perseverance that enabled a group of people to establish a successful community within a larger society that seemed determined to keep them from success.
- Author BiographyTimuel D. Black Jr. is a prominent civil rights activist and also a professor emeritus of social sciences at the City Colleges of Chicago. Born in Birmingham, he moved to Chicago as a baby and has lived here ever since.
