Publisher's Summary

As gentrification encroaches on historic Harlem, Rona Jaffe Foundation Writer’s Award recipient Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts untangles the myth and meaning of its storied legacy. Drawing on Harlem’s history and her own observations, Rhodes-Pitts introduces a variety of observers who shared a common hope that Harlem would become the ground from which Blacks fully entered America’s democracy.

An amazing book! The author plays the ingenue, seeing Harlem through the eyes of a bookish newcomer. It is read beautifully and is really a work of literature.
