North Webster
A Photographic History
of a Black Community

by Ann Morris and Henrietta Ambrose

Softcover, 192 pages, 8" x 10"
Copyright 1993
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.
