HBCU Money™ Business Book Feature – The Other Brahmins, Boston’s Black Upper Class (1750-1950)


This pioneering work explores race and the social caste system in an atypical northern environment over a period of two centuries. Cromwell identifies those blacks in Boston who exercised political, economic, and social leadership from the end of the eighteenth century to the middle of the twentieth, and effectively challenges the simplistic notions of hierarchy as they pertain to race.
