  1. Merit, Not Sympathy, Wins Front Cover

    Merit, Not Sympathy, Wins: The Life and Times of Blind Boone

    $25.00

    Missouri proudly claims two of America's premier ragtime musicians - Scott Joplin and John William "Blind" Boone. Joplin's import has been well documented, but the story of Boone's remarkable life and his legendary skills as a piano keyboardist and entertainer have faded from public memory. Thanks to the insightful offerings of a stellar cast of contributors, this much-needed volume documents Boone's extraordinary experiences as a celebrated African American musician, reveals the racial injustices of his time and place, and rescues him from undeserved obscurity. --William E. Foley, Professor Emeritus, University of Central Missouri Learn More

  8. North Webster

    North Webster : A Photographic History of a Black Community

    $25.00

    North Webster : a photographic history of a Black community. By Ann Morris, Henrietta Ambrose, and John Wm Nagel. North Webster is a black middle-class suburb of St. Louis, nestled against the upper-middle-class white suburb of Webster Groves. Originally, the black familes of the former worked for the white families of the latter; the area's history is also complicated by the fact Missouri was a border state, with many southern characteristics but without an economy built on slavery. In any case, Morris and Ambrose tell an embattled but triumphant story of strong families, old-time religion, and an emphasis on education as the true path to freedom. Extraordinary photographs.
