All Around Town: The Photographs of Richard Samuels Roberts
By: Dinah Johnson
Publisher: Henry Holt & Co.
Read by: Dinah Johnson
This special picture book offers a window into the African American community of Columbia, South Carolina, during the early twentieth century. While the town is specific, the themes and photographs are universal--weddings and funerals, teachers and preachers, sassy cars and baseball teams, and, of course, families of all sizes. More than half a century later, Richard Samuel Roberts's photographs and Dinah Johnson's lyrical text come together to illustrate the pride, joy, and strength of a bustling community.
