Beyond These Gates: Mountains of Hope in Rochester’s African-American History

$29.00

By Marilyn S. Nolte and Verdis L. Robinson

This book brings to light the stories of several African-Americans, some well known, some not. We bestow upon them the title of Mounts of Hope, for they came to Rochester, New York with an enduring optimism, endless courage, the ability to overcome obstacles, to labor for their bread, to fight for their beliefs, to make contributions to their community, and throughout their lives maintain mountains of hope for their future and that of their children. It is fitting that they rest permanently in a cemetery with the name, Mount Hope.
