"This remarkable book reproduces more than 100 photographs taken by R.C. Hickman, a professional photographer whose work provides a fascinating visual record of life in Dallas' black community during the three decades following World War II."

A self-trained photographer who later became an official Army photographer, Hickman eventually joined the staff of the Dallas Star Post and did work for several national publications. "Hickman's work as a NAACP is invaluable evidence of the racial segregation and the struggle to end it in North Texas--evidence that Dallas's major news media generally refused to report. He sometimes worked under hostile, even dangerous conditions."

- Dustjacket Blurb

"These are images of the ordinary lives of extraordinary people who succeeded in spite of all the obstacles in their path, and who eventually demanded and, in important ways, won their rights. R.C. Hickman's photographs are important documents that capture a significant moment in 20th century American life."

- Barbara Jordan

A wonderful slice of North Dallas life seen through the lens of newspaper snapper RC Hickman. What gives these photos additional credence is the coverage of the NAACP activities in Texas. Hickman was regarded by the organization as their official photographer in the area and there are several photos that reveal the depth of segregation, obviously not normally covered by white media . Plate sixty-nine, from 1958, shows two black ambulance men lifting a body into their vehicle. The murder victim wasn't allowed, by the police, to go to hospital in a white run ambulance, he had to wait for the black unit.

Though the photos are straight reportage newspaper style, I thought most of them fascinating because of the amount of detail they contained about black life. Hickman covered it all but strangely he didn't remain a professional photographer. In his sixties he tried other job interests, he died in 2007.

The 109 photos are one to a page with generous margins and they all have captions and nicely short comments from Hickman. Though the cropping of the photos varies quite a lot I thought it was a pity that the they are only reproduced with a 175 screen. The quality is there and they would look superb as high screen duotones on a good matt art.

Hickman, as a newspaper photographer, wasn't as famous as Charles 'Teenie' Harris of the Pittsburgh Courier paper (he gets a mention in the definitive: Reflections in Black: A History of Black Photographers 1840 to the Present) but you just have to look at these photos to realize he deserves a place in American photographic history because of his thoughtful coverage of the Dallas black community.
