Original program or booklet for the February 10-17, 1957 celebration of Negro History Week in Tennessee. Published by the Tennessee State Branch of the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History (now the Association for the Study of African American Life and History). Contains fantastic information and photographs of African American leaders and businesses in Tennessee in the time immediately before the Civil Rights crisis began to explode. Negro History Week has become Black History Month, but racism is still central to the American discussion.
8 1/2" x 11", 24 pages, softcover. The front cardboard cover is detaching from the top staple and the back cover is gone.The pages are tanned but still supple, not brittle. Overall a good solid usable and readable copy. A amazingly relevant piece of history and a superb addition to any library or collection. Please see the Civil Rights.
