Milestones Along the Color Line

Published by Olvier B. Quick - dated in 1922, but the buildings and residents appear to be ~mid-1920s, the introduction reads:

"This little book presents views showing property owned and controlled exclusively by Negroes in the city of Durham, NC. It is not a complete collection. There are other institutions and homes in the city equally as deserving of place in this book but lack of space prevents their showing. We have selected these as evidence of the progress being made by our race group in this section of the South." -OLIVER B. QUICK.

Full digitized copies of Quick's pamphlet are available elsewhere online; what follows is a tour of the sites featured mapped on Durham's landscape. Click to view full pages for the various stops below.
