Author will discuss new book on blacks in Vallejo
http://www.dailyrepublic.com/news/fairfield/a...

Sharon McGriff-Payne, a lifelong resident of Vallejo, will discuss her new book,“African Americans in Vallejo,” from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Becker Balmer meeting room of the Fairfield Civic Center Library, 1150 Kentucky St.

Her previous work,“John Grider’s Century – African Americans in Solano, Napa, and Sonoma Counties from 1845 to 1925,” explored early black pioneers who settled in Northern California, leading the way for blacks who would follow in the 20th century.

The new book boasts more than 200 vintage images and talks about how blacks have been part of Vallejo for more than 150 years. The book is published by Arcadia Publishing and can be purchased at area bookstore.

If you skip to the very last chapter, the journey ends at the Marina Vista apartments.

Does it label all the armed robbers as " victims"? How about the rapists and feral kids?

Is it a history of how blacks ruined Vallejo?

i take it back to the johnson admin's "great society". it's now an embedded society of lazy obedient democratic voters assuring their continued life of leisure.
