African Americans in
How delightful. The pictorial volume begins with Bones Hooks, the legendary African Texan cowboy. Authors Stuart and Stuntz both teach at West Texas A&M in Canyon.
And the story of this Panhandle city during the 20th century goes onward. The 200+ photos document folks going about their lives in church life, sports, businesses, music, communications specialists, policemen, politics, trains, jewelry stores, Girl Scouting, social life, and more. Leaders, families, churches, schools, and fraternal orders, and social events have their special chapters.
The photos from church and individual collections are enriched with annotations.
Hmm, as for my favorites, there's Professor Silas Patten in his early model (maybe the 1920's) car that he used to help tend the schools under his tutelage. And there's Eddie Lee Jones beside one of the several trucks in his trucking business. I imagine Eddie and Bones could have enjoyed a bowl of chili together.
