4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Sherman R. White, Sr. (srwhite34@yahoo.com) on October 23, 1999
Format: Paperback
I may be a little prejudiced in this review as Agnes Cross White is my wife of almost 35 years. She has done a wonderful job of capturing a city once segregated, but rich in its ownself with craftsman, school teachers, doctors and an assortment of other professionals that did their home community proud. Many of the photographs in the book come from the photographic archives of Agnes Cross-White's father-in-law, Randolph White-my father. Dad and I took numerous pictures during that time which depicted life in the fifties, sixties and seventies as he founded and published the Charlottesville-Albemarle Tribune, a Black weekly newspaper, which Ms. White now edits and publishes. This book, a type of photo essay journal, come as close as "a letter from home" as a picture photo album can come...Sherman R. White, Sr.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Barbara J. Wood-Washington on April 2, 2000
Format: Paperback
I grew up in Charlottesville, Va, and in reading this book, it was like a step back in time, even though times were hard because of the beginning of segregation, it was still a wonderful time for me as a young girl. I went to Jefferson Elementary School and Jackson P. Burley High, and to see the teachers, old class mates, and so much more in the book, just was a blessing for me.
