Black Georgetown Remembered reveals a rich but little-known history of the Georgetown Black community from the colonial period to the present. Drawing on primary sources, including oral interviews with past and current residents and extensive research in church and historical society archives, the authors record the hopes, dreams, disappointments, and successes of a vibrant neighborhood as it persevered through slavery and segregation, war and peace, prosperity and depression.

This thirtieth anniversary edition of Black Georgetown Remembered, first published in 1991, features more than two hundred illustrations, including portraits of prominent community leaders, sketches, maps, and nineteenth-century and contemporary photographs. A new chapter includes a conversation with former and current Georgetown residents reflecting on the community, past and present.

Praise for the book:

"Makes a great contribution to the little-known history of black Washington."
Washington Post Book World, reviewing a past edition

"As Black Georgetown Remembered demonstrates, much of Georgetown's African-American history can still be found within the community itself, especially in its church records and the personal papers and memories of various families."Maria R. Goodwin, Washington History, reviewing a past edition
