Summary

The 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago was more than a display of American ingenuity. African Americans--among them Frederick Douglass, Ida B. Wells, and George Washington Carver--hoped the fair would help fulfill the dream of true emancipation by including them as full participants in this historic event. Instead they were snubbed. Reed's book vividly recounts their pathos and joy, disappointment and hope.
