Blacks. New York City has played a pivotal role in the history of black Americans. The city during the nineteenth century was a center of abolitionism, the site of influential black churches, benevolent organizations, and schools, and a focus of sometimes violent conflict between blacks.

Victor Hugo Green (November 9, – Octo ) was an American postal employee and travel writer from Harlem, New York City, best known for developing and writing what became known as The Green Book, a travel guide for African Americans in the United States. During the time the book was published, choices of lodging, restaurants and even gas stations were limited for black people in many.

"PM" one of New York's great white newspapers found out about it. Wrote an article about the guide and praised it highly. At the present time the guide contains 80 pages and lists numerous business places, including whites which cater to the Negro trade.

There are thousands of first class business places that we don't know about and can't list. New York City art program, including artists and their work, (AN, ANM, ANS; 7, images).

The thing with 'New York' is that it tries to capture New York city through many, many narratives in one book which I find is the central issue to the book. This is the kind of story that needs to be in a mini series because of the history and the amount of people who helped build New York /5(K).

Alain Locke (–) was an American educator, writer, and philosopher who is best remembered as the leader and chief interpreter of the Harlem Renaissance. His anthology The New Negro () familiarized American readers with the fiction, poetry, essays, and other writings of the Harlem Renaissance.

According to The New York Times, the point on the East River didn’t even have a name until“when a survey team learned the name riverboat workers used to refer to the outcropping of rocks and sanitized it for official purposes.” (In other words, the racist origin of the name was clear, and the name was originally in English.).

In -- nine years before Harry Reid was born -- the New York Times Style Book made the change.) Black supplanted Negro when the energy of this movement waned.

Inafter the black power movement had itself faded, many leaders decided another semantic change was required. The first issue of the Green Book was limited to black-owned and non-discriminatory businesses in New York City.

Exploring the true story of the Green Book is an aspect of the National Trust's work to tell the full American story through its African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund.In the edition, there is a listing of "Negro colleges," as well as an advertorial apparently reprinted from The New York Times that alludes to the participation of African-American soldiers.Byone of every four of New York City’sresidents was an Irish-born immigrant.

While many labored in several of the city’s skilled trades, the vast majority of Irish immigrants worked as unskilled laborers on the docks, as ditch diggers and street pavers, and as cartmen and coal heavers.
