Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a must read for anyone living in Solano, Napa or Sonoma counties, African American or not. It provides a glimpse into a part of our history few are taught, especially in schools. This would make a great guide for a high school or college research project. The author relies heavily on Delilah Beasley's "Negro Tralblazers of California." I haven't read the entire book as it is comprehensive of all of California, but I am making my way through it and recommend it as well to anyone interested in California history.
