Riassunto: The rich African-American heritage of Columbus, Georgia, comes alive in this engaging collection of images and stories. From the town's early days when pioneers settled along the Chattahoochee River to its present status as a thriving metropolitan community, Columbus boasts an eventful history, one that would not be complete without the hard work and extraordinary achievements of its African-American community. Within these pages, the reader will discover such legendary figures as Eugene Bullard, the first black Aviator; Dr. Thomas Brewer, a champion of the Civil Rights movement; and Alma Thomas, a celebrated and accomplished visual artist.
Author Judith Grant plays a vital role in preserving
Columbus's history. She designed the city's Black Heritage
Trail, a corridor into the past which documents sites of interest with historical markers. Also an accomplished playwright and poet, Grant brings to Columbus a love for her hometown and a true sense of its multi-faceted history.
