AfriGeneas Western Frontier Forum

barbers, miners, boardinghouses

This newest forum is an answer to my prayers! My grandma's people went west from Georgia and Virginia after the Civil War and moved around through North Dakota, Idaho, Washington, British Columbia, and Montana. The women worked in and ran boardinghouses and kitchens, the men mined and worked as barbers too. I look forward to learning more about the west that they lived in, and remembering the stories my grandma told. I hope that scholars like Professor Quintard Taylor and others will continue to make our contributions to the west more visible! I found this book to be very interesting:
African American Women Confront the West, 16002000, edited by Quintard Taylor and Shirley Ann Wilson Moore. Norman, Oklahoma: University of Oklahoma Press, 2003.
