Built by and for blacks in 1928, the Dunbar became a haven for the world's most prominent black entertainers in the '30's, '40's and '50's. Built by a Jamaican, the Dunbar was the city's first integrated hotel. ... Featured personalities recall the music, the meals, the merrymaking and the camaraderie which overstepped the boundaries of racism."--1979 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt.
