DOWNTOWN ENSLEY & TUXEDO JUNCTION: An Introductory History
by David B. Schneider
Birmingham, Alabama: Published 2009, 1st edition, 28 pages + original printed paper covers; 8½ x 11 inch format. Profusely illustrated with dark sepia halftone photos.
A brief but very useful history of the Ensley neighborhood in Birmingham Alabama (it was once a separate city), now largely a black neighborhood centered around the historic old Tuxedo Junction area (made famous by African-American Jazz Man Erskine Hawkins, a native of that area).
Ensley was also a major center of coal and iron mining and steel and iron blast furnace operations so the booklet deals with that a good bit as well.
NOTE: Even though it is still used by the United Negro College Fund and by organizations honoring black baseball players from the days before integration, I know some people who buy on consider the term "Negro" outdated and possibly even stereotypical as I have gotten a few emails to that effect in the past. But in my 13 years' experience on here it appears that most people - evenmany serious black people who collect this old, ORIGINALstereotypical material -prefer it for titles because it makes for so much easier searching than "Black" and because there is rarely room in the title ( only allows sellers a small, limited number ofletters & numbersfor the title) for the term "African American."
Fine copy, now out-of-print.
(the fine print ... [sigh] ... but please read :-)
