As in many cities in the early 20th-century South, the African-American citizens of Charlotte created their own society that mirrored the larger white community. Yet, black Charlotte was always self-sustaining, with its own schools, library, and businesses. Second Ward High School (1923-1969) was the area's first high school for blacks, and although the school and much of its surroundings have since been razed, the photo archive at the Second Ward Alumni House Museum helps keep alive the memories of the school and the entire black community.

Authors Ely, Drain, and Rogers have compiled this intriguing pictorial history, which includes images and keepsakes from both the museum archive and private collections, to celebrate Charlotte's African-American citizens and the rich heritage they possess.
