Before chain coffeeshops and luxury high-rises, before even the beginning of desegregation and the 1968 riots, Washington's Greater U Street was known as Black Broadway.

Local author and journalist Briana A. Thomas narrates U Street's rich and unique history, from the early triumph of

In this provocative study, Robert Harrison provides new insight into grassroots reconstruction after the Civil War and into the lives of those most deeply affected, the newly emancipated African Americans. Harrison argues that the District of Columbia, far from being marginal to the Reconstruction story, was central to Republican efforts to reshape civil and political relations, with the capital a testing ground for Congressional policy makers.

Descriptive prose covers each game, from the crack of Brad Wilkerson's bat to Livan Hernandez's eight-inning outings.
