Chronicling the period from 1900 to the 1950s, Growing Up Black in New Castle County, Delaware brings together the touching stories of African Americans in northern Delaware who grew up during an era of both hardship and happiness. In a time when racial segregation was law and the nation faced such challenges as war and economic depression, African-American children in New Castle County and around the country were busy exploring the world around them-playing with friends, celebrating holidays, attending school, and learning the important life lessons that would carry them through the rest of the twentieth century. In this valuable volume of oral history, the recorded childhood memories of African Americans-from family rituals to first jobs, neighborhood games to classroom assignments-are illustrated with vintage photographs culled from family albums and archives.

  • I was born, raised, and educated in DE. In fact, I remember the author as the daughter of one of the teachers in the elementary/junior high school I attended. It took me "right down memory lane" and it's nice to do that every now and then. I applaud her for doing the research, and from what I know about the people in the community was not always easy. But overall, the facts were accurate as I remember and I learned some things that I did not know.Bravo! Dr. Nutter.

  • This book contains brief interviews with African Americans who grew up in New Castle County De prior to 1950. I enjoyed the history of the various areas. It gave me a better understanding of segragation since I am not Black.

  • Excellent 1st person memories of how it was and what we owe to the generations before us.
