Used Book in Good Condition

From its beginnings in York, Pennsylvania, in 1847, until the death of Wallace L. Goodridge in Saginaw, Michigan, in
1922, the Goodridge Brothers Studio was the most significant and enduring African American photographic establishment in
North America. In Enterprising Images, John Vincent Jezierski tells the story of one of America's first families of
photography, documenting the history of the Goodridge studio for three-quarters of a century. The existence of more than
one thousand Goodridge photographs in all formats and the family's professional and personal activism enrich the
portrait that emerges of this extraordinary family. Weaving photographic and regional history with the narrative of a
family whose lives paralleled the social and political happenings of the country, Jezierski provides the reader with a
complex family biography for those interested in regional and African American, as well as photographic, history.
