Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pine Bluff/Jefferson County has been one of the Arkansas Delta's most culturally rich areas since its inception in 1829. Serving as a haven for runaway slaves during the late years of the Civil War, the area attracted droves of African Americans throughout the Delta and south Arkansas. Brimming with talent and expectations, they and their descendants traveled a road full of extremes. Although they endured what appears to have been the largest mass lynching in US history in 1866, they also attained one of the largest per-capita concentrations of black wealth in the entire South by 1900. As the hands that labored in the area's boundless cotton fields and sawmills joined with the hands that held books at the state's only historically black public college, astonishing accomplishments were churned out in every imaginable field. Naturally, Pine Bluff/Jefferson County's Delta roots made its blues, jazz, and gospel contributions a source of pride, with native or area-affiliated artists receiving multiple Grammy awards and nominations, as well as other distinctions.

About the Author

In Images of America: African Americans of Pine Bluff and Jefferson County, authors Donna Cunningham, a longtime Pine Bluff resident and retired social studies teacher, and Jimmy Cunningham Jr., a grant writer, voiceover artist, and Pine Bluff native, have created a celebratory retrospective of the area's past.
