From black female prostitution to homosexual brothels, from taxi dance halls to speakeasies, Mumford reconstructs the mixed-race underworld of the Great Migration and the Progressive era to reveal how these subcultures transformed not only race relations, but American culture as well.

Amy Gilman Srebnick

A good addition to an emerging body of creative and innovative work on the cultural history of race and the complicated relationship between marginal and mainstream culture in early twentieth-century America.
