Baltimore: Jaki Hall Enterprises, . Softcover. Very Good. Softcover. A scarce directory of African-American businesses in Baltimore and its suburbs. A mayoral proclamation reprinted here states that this is the first comprehensive directory minority businesses, services, and professionals in the metropolitan area. Its publisher, Jaki Hall states that the purpose of the directory is to encourage black people to take the helm and steer their own economic course, including supporting each other and keeping their dollars in the black community. There is a history of black business in Baltimore, an economic forecast for the 80s, awards, and then the listings by category. With photos and advertisements throughout. It appears that this is the only edition of the directory published. Bound in black paper covers with white spine and white title to front. Slight rubbing and chipping but very good. Interior pages also very good save for handwritten ownership information on the first page. A useful reference for Baltimore and African-American research. 108 pages. BALT/070816. (Inventory #: 29602)
