Cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Miami are staples in our economic system, widely known for their ports, gateways for immigration, and financial and cultural impacts on society. "Unsung Heroes" not only sheds the same light on Chattanooga, but serves as a testament to all things Americana.
I was delighted to discover that in the early 1900s, an African American woman opened the first black hospital, and that it survives today as a renovated, luxury apartment complex in downtown Chattanooga! This book is full of gems like these!
Make no mistake..."African Americans of Chattanooga: A History of Unsung Heroes" deserves a place on your bookshelf or coffee table. I also believe that it would serve well in a classroom, study, or library. Do yourself a favor and order your copy of this wonderful book! You won't regret it!
