The Rise And Fall Of The Original Black Elite
1A, Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 0am
"The curse of prejudice is the hand-maid of ignorance," said Daniel Murray. Murray was assistant librarian at the Library of Congress in the late 19th century. He was also a member of the Black Elite, an exclusive group of educated, accomplished, and refined African Americans in and around Washington D.C. that formed after the Civil War. Author Elizabeth Dowling Taylor's new book The Original Black Elite: Daniel Murray and the Story of a Forgotten Era tells Murray's story, and in doing so, traces the rise and fall of the elite class in America.
