Abstract:

"In this ethnographic account of a Black neighbourhood in Pittsburgh, Dr. Williams describes the pain and pleasure of being poor and Black, and the various life styles that accompany these conditions in one neighbourhood. He states, 'I intend an intimate look at the trials, tribulations, and joys of a street and neighborhood scene that can probably be found in places like this all over the United States.' Dr. Williams allows people to speak for themselves in telling us how it is and uses his lifelong experience to explain what it is all about. What emerges is a vivid picture by an African-American anthropologist of a small Black world that looms large in America."--Foreword.
