Examining the epic Harlem of official history and the personal Harlem that begins at her front door, she introduces us to a wide variety of characters, past and present. At the heart of their stories, and her own, is the hope carried overmany generations, hope that Harlem would be the ground from which blacks fully entered America's democracy. Fresh and vivid, this book perfectly captures the dramatic moments and personalities at the core of Harlem's ever-evolving story.

In , when Stephen Lewis was a toddler, his family moved into a four-room suite at the famed Taft Hotel when his father became its manager, a position that he held for 33 successful years. Growing up, his grade school classmates were awed by the free lunch that Steve's mother served every day in the Lewis's 15th-floor suite and were later impressed with the limitless supply of ice cream available to the Lewis boys.
While the other kids from school grew up in Hell's Kitchen, Steve learned how to use a swizzle stick, brought girls home to dance in the ballroom at lunchtime, and generally lived the high life at the beautiful Taft Hotel.
