That's The Way it Was : Stories of Struggle, Survival and Self-Respect in 20th Century Black St. Louis by Vida Goldman Prince
Segregation was a way of life in St. Louis, aptly called "the most southern city in the North." These thirteen oral histories describe the daily struggle that pervasive racism demanded but also share the tradition of self-respect that the African American community of St. Louis sought to build on its own terms.
