From Library Journal
A different kind of guidebook from two local authors, this describes the homes and haunts of African-Americans. Where did Marian Anderson sing when refused admittance to a Washington, D.C. church? (The Lincoln Memorial.) The authors divide Washington into 15 sections, with brief chapters of one to two pages each. Slavery, segregation, education, and gentrification are discussed in short paragraphs. The book provides offbeat information and would probably be a good source for school assignments. There is an excellent bibliography. Recommended for general readers and high school libraries, though not an essential item.- Fern Sikkema, Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis, Washington,
