No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality. ------ Nearly a century's worth of photographs from the renowned Addison Scurlock Studio are compiled in this handsome book designed to celebrate the legacy of a noted family of photographers and to present a vivid portrait of black Washington, D.C. ------ Among the portraits' subjects are luminaries such as Marian Anderson, Duke Ellington, Ralph Bunche, Mary McLeod Bethune and Muhammad Ali. Many of the photographs show Washington as the mecca for leaders in African American business, culture and higher education long before New York City's Harlem. The book features illuminating essays from 25 contributors.
