About this title


""Morris and Ambrose tell an embattled but triumphant story of strong families, old-time religion, and an emphasis on education as the true path to freedom. Extraordinary photographs."" -- Booklist

""Informal photographs taken from family albums and collections provide a warm, intimate look at several decades of middle-class African-American life."" -- Los Angeles Times Book Review

.."". a fascinating history of the achievements and tribulations... of North Webster, a small African-American community in an upper middle-class suburb of St. Louis.""A -- Journal of American History

.."". a gloriously positive story which disproves past, present, and future notions that America's black population cannot effectively embrace love, family commitment, religious fervor, industriousness, career advancement, and academic achievement.""A -- Julius K. Hunter, KMOV-TV Channel 4 News, St. Louis

""This book should serve as an inspiration to people of all races."" -- Gateway Heritage

More than 140 period photographs illustrate this history of a remarkable, successful black community near St. Louis. North Webster Grove is a black middle-class suburb which began at the end of the Civil War. Its residents have suffered the discrimination of a southern border state, and yet they accomplished great things.

From the Back Cover:

The joyously uplifting story of a people's triumph over tribulation, aversion to adversity, and pride over prejudice.
