Reviews
"In Harlem on My Mind one witnesses it all--the joys, sorrows, and triumphs of this mecca of black achievement. Along with the visual excitement are fascinating articles that reveal Harlem as it was in the early 1900s, as it is today, and what one might expect from it in the future. It is an important contribution, not only to the history of Harlem, but to the history of America." --Gordon Parks

"Harlem on My Mind represents months and years of research that would be impossible to duplicate today. It should be considered a history of the times; it is important for the present generation and coming generations. . . . No household, school, or library should be without it." --James Van Der Zee
