Archeological Finds Vol. 55 “publication highlighting the Black community from around 1956”

“Dear PoPville,

We recently replaced the front porch of our Capitol Hill home, and in the debris underneath uncovered this old-looking booklet. It’s missing the cover, but from what I can tell is a publication highlighting the Black community – everything from African American musicians to a “toothpick artist.” From what I can tell, it’s from around 1956.

Anyway, it felt wrong to toss this out as it may be of interest to someone/some organization.”
