Nearly new, very tight binding, likely unread. No markings, slight shelfwear. Gates, chairman of Harvard's Afro American Studies program, reflects affectionately on his boyhood hometown, Piedmont West Virginia. He describes black life in a paper mill town that had begun the process of integration but still bore many marks of the Jim Crow years. Gates said his book is aimed at young blacks who never experienced the full force of segregation or the strong support of extended families. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
