Washington, Vol. 2
Capital City, 1879-1950
Constance McLaughlin Green
In this second volume Constance Green describes the development of the local community, its citizens and institutions, through the years following World War II. Particularly interesting is the dominant role played by the Washington Negro community, which had early become the cultural center of American Negro society. The conflicts, ambitions, and antagonisms of this city within a city are here given sympathetic and objective exposition.
