«An important contribution to the field of African American urban history and the history of black Chicago in particular.

Weems Jr., author of <i>Black Business in the Black Metropolis: The Chicago Metropolitan Assurance Company, 1925–1985</i>»

«<p> "A readable and important work in African American and U.S. urban history."--<i>Indiana Magazine of History</i></p>»
