What makes one community better than another? In the heyday, the area around Indiana Avenue was quite the community. It was a community filled with flavor, rhythm and a share of despair. The story of Indiana Avenue gives consideration to the question of "What does a great community lack or possess that contributes to the concept of greatness?" Indiana Avenue: Black Entertainment Boulevard, gets to the essence of these answers by tracing the full life cycle of a community, a community known nationally as a significant player in the American jazz story. Indiana Avenue: Black Entertainment Boulevard is the story of how a community functioned, prospered, declined and revitalized. It is a story with great implications. On the one hand, this story is a localized history of a subculture. On the other hand, to understand the Indiana Avenue story is to understand how similar historical communities like Harlem in New York, Bourbon Street in New Orleans and Beale Street in Memphis functioned and developed. All these communities, like many more, had similar traits and parallel histories. These communities became known nationally as stops on a Chitterlings Circuit, a network of entertainment venues made famous due to Jim Crow and separatist laws. Indiana Avenue is a story filled with social and political dynamics. This story gives insight into the development of jazz as well as how entertainment evolved along racial lines. The story of Indiana Avenue involves an astounding American era with deep implications for today.

About the Author:

C. Nickerson Bolden developed a passion for writing as a graduate student. As a result, Indiana Avenue: Black Entertainment Boulevard, was first published as a partial fulfillment of the Master of Community Planning degree awarded from the University of Cincinnati in 1983.Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, for undergraduate college, Bolden attended Boston University and majored in religious studies. It was while at Boston University where the late Rev. Dr. Martin L. king, Jr. had attended, that he was introduced to the love of history and the fire and fervor of the Apostolic church movement. By the time he gained some work experience, it was clear to him that God had placed a distinct calling on his life for ministry, a burden for young people, especially those with discipline problems. He has labored tirelessly to reach them ever since. He has founded a non-for-profit organization called Victorious Ministries that involves teaching geared to a hip-hop generation. Bolden has another a book detailing some of the many challenging situations facing youth of urban America called Bridging the Gulf: Understanding and Ministering to Urban Youths. He has served as an adjunct faculty of various Indianapolis universities including Martin University, Aenon Bible College and IVY Tech State College. He has also been published in various weeklies and trade publications including the Indiana Herald, the Indianapolis Recorder, The Christian Outlook, Buffalo Criterion, About Time Magazine, Gospel Today, the Memphis Silver Star and the National Newspaper Publisher┐s Association.
