All Around Town: The Photographs of Richard Samuel Roberts, by Dinah Johnson

$15.95

He knew that one day a boy or a girl like you would look at his pictures and see a whole world in the eyes of a Carolina boy or girl.
  If fanciful words and pictures, this special picture book offers a window into the African-American community in 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 Roberts’s photographs and Dinah Johnson’s lyrical text come together to illustrate the pride, joy and strength of bustling community. © 28 pages
