Anthony Hill’s book, Pages from the Harlem Renaissance, is an historical and critical analysis of the nature and significance of J.A. Jackson’s Page in Billboard. Hill explores Jackson’s vision of black performance as seen through the Page against the larger framework of national and cultural concerns of the 1920s. The study is a testimony to the major accomplishments of black performers in all phases of black show business. Hill documents the development of the column from its founding in 1920 to its disappearance in 1925, focusing on Jackson as a critic, reporter, spokesman, and booster of black entertainment. The author moves on to assess Jackson’s role in shaping black performance relative to the major theatrical critics W.E.B. DuBois, Theophilus Lewis, Sylvester Russell, and Romeo Dougherty. He then discusses key issues that include setting standards, improving conditions on the TOBA touring circuit, and organizing unions.

In writing about Jackson's Page (1920 25), Professor Hill provides insight into an amazing man, who wrote about a world and time that is now recognized as a seminal period of American performance history. James V. Hatch, Excerpt from the Foreword

Anthony Hill has filled in some quite important blanks in the history and criticism of African American performance. Now we understand that the African American performing arts are where they are in a great part because of the expertise and dedication of James Albert 'Billboard' Jackson. We are greatly indebted to Professor Hill. Samuel A. Hay, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University

Anthony Hill has rendered an important service to the historical and critical record on American theatre and African American theatre in particular by focusing upon an all but unknown chapter concerning Black journalist James Albert Jackson and his unique, five-year-long theatrical 'Page' in Billboard during the height of the Harlem Renaissance. William B. Branch, The William Paterson College of New Jersey

In Pages from the Harlem Renaissance, Anthony Hill skillfully r eclaims a seminal era in American entertainment, journalism, and culture. Timothy White, Editor In Chief of Billboard and author of Catch a Fire: The Life of Bob Marley
