«<i>"The Rise of Chicago's Black Metropolis, 1920–1929</i> is well organized, cogently written, and substantially documented. This thoroughly enjoyable work will be of interest not just to Chicagoans, but to scholars of urban studies, black entrepreneurship, and black politics."--Robert L. Harris Jr., coeditor of <i>The Columbia Guide to African-American History Since 1939</i>»

«An important contribution to the field of African American urban history and the history of black Chicago in particular. Among other things, Christopher Robert Reed persuasively cites the need for a reappraisal of Cayton and Drake's classic depiction of Chicago's 'Black Metropolis' by illuminating the role of professionals and political and religious organizations."--Robert E. Weems Jr., author of <i>Black Business in the Black Metropolis: The Chicago Metropolitan Assurance Company, 1925–1985</i>»
