SKU: ISBN# 978-1-939669-16-2

Compiled by Gaylen B. Goldsmith (2017).  This is the story of the Afro American community in West Point, Kentucky.  It is a history of the black community resulting from a combination of book research, court records, census records and oral histories from some yet living in West Point at the time of writing.  The book is not intended to reflect a complete history of the black people of the West Point area and the families of the area known as Brick Yard Holler.  It is hoped that this work may result in further research of this often neglected part of our history.  Included are stories of the people and events of bygone time.  Also presented is the genealogical history of the earliest black residents as well as Civil War military service of many of these residents.  Every name index.  175 pages, Mylar cover and spiral bound.
