This remarkable book reproduces more than one hundred photographs taken by R. C. Hickman, a professional photographer whose work provides a fascinating visual record of life in Dallas's black community during the three decades following World War II.
After the war, he returned to Dallas and joined the staff of the Dallas Star Post. He also worked as a freelance photographer for Jet magazine, for several newspapers in the East, and for the NAACP. His work led him to photograph notables such as Martin Luther King Jr., Thurgood Marshall, Ella Fitzgerald, Joe Louis, and others when they visited Dallas.
