Reviews

"Houston native Tyina L. Steptoe's masterful work . . . honors, among others, her ancestors--Creoles of color--whose determination, work ethic, cultural ingenuity, and activism made her success possible. With the use of an impressive array of records and sources . . . the author reconstructs the complex, interwoven histories of four groups of Houstonians whose appearance during the Great Migrations helped shape the historical contours of what would ultimately become the nation's fourth largest city."--Southwestern Historical Quarterly
"Steptoe beautifully details the social and sonic history of race and migration in Houston between the 1920s and the 1960s."--American Historical Review
