Summary
"Nearly a century's worth of Scurlock photographs combine to form a searing portrait of a black Washington in all its guises - its challenges and its victories, its dignity and its determination. Beginning in the early twentieth century and continuing into the 1990s, Addison Scurlock, followed by his sons, Robert and George, used their cameras to document and celebrate a community unique in the world, and a stronghold in the history and culture of the nation's capital."--inside jacket
