TCU Press: New Publication and Event

TCU Press is proud to announce the September publication of Calvin Littlejohn: Portrait of a Community in Black and White. Littlejohn was for many years the only photographer for the black schools, churches, and businesses in Fort Worth, and he documented a vibrant community during the Jim Crow era. Bob Ray Sanders, Associate Editor/Senior Columnist for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, wrote the introduction and section essays. The images are housed in the Littlejohn Archive at the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin. The Fort Worth Public Library and TCU Press are cosponsoring a book launch at the Ella Mae Shamblee Branch Library, 1062 Evans Avenue, on Thursday, October 22, 2009, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Contact Susan R. Petty, 817.257.5074 for more information.
