Baltimore Red Book

Y'all have heard of the #GreenBook or the #BlueBook (otherwise known as the #FirstColoredDirectoryofBaltimoreCity (with a #WashingtonDC annex) published by #RobertWColeman.

Created in 1934, the Red Book listed the Black businesses in Baltimore: lawyers, doctors, educators, hairdressers, bar and tavern owners, photographers and so many more.

The #NannyJackAndCoArchives contains one copy of this rare Black Baltimore business directory but have actively been looking for other editions.
