Despite its growth as an industrial center, Evansville remained heavily influenced by the virulent racism of its antebellum past. Bigham traces the devlopment of a black community, focusing on the origin and nature of the obstacles to equal opportunity. He reveals, however, that black Evansvillians built a richly variegated subculture, relying heavily on their own resources, and occasional assistance from sympathetic whites.

From the Back Cover:

With few exception, studies of urban black communities published in the past twenty years have treated large American metropolises and ignored the experiences of blacks in towns and small to middle-sized cities. That prompted the author to commence research on the Evansville black community in the early 1970s.

From Library Journal:

Bigham's carefully crafted history vividly details blacks' struggle to live in a small- to medium-sized Northern city. Evansville had only 10 blacks in 1820, 96 in 1860, and 8895 in 1950. At their relative peak, reached in 1900 when they numbered 1408, blacks were 12.5 percent of the city's population. Although battered by mobs and ostracized by law, they did more than simply endure; they developed a subculture that promoted their life, Bigham argues. His fine study is recommended for collections on local, urban, and black history. Thomas J. Davis, SUNY at Buffalo Lib .
