A Photographic History
of a Black Community
by Ann Morris and Henrietta
Softcover, 192 pages, 8" x 10"
Indiana University Press
From the back cover:
North Webster is a black middle-class
suburb west of St. Louis which began at the end of the Civil War. Its
residents have suffered the discrimination of a southern, border state, and
yet have accomplished great things. The North Webster community emphasized
education as the path to achievement from the beginning. Its elementary
school and high school were among the finest schools for blacks in the
country. With its outstanding school, seven churches, and many black-owned
businesses, North Webster taught its children to aspire and excel. This book
is a history together with 141 black-and-white period photographs of that
community and the people who gave it its character.
