Summary
"The 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago showed the world that America had come of age. African Americans, dreaming that they could participate fully as citizens, flocked to the fair by the thousands. "All the World Is Here!" examines why they came and the ways in which they participated in the Exposition." "According to Reed, African Americans' expectations of the fair varied, reflecting the disparate interests and backgrounds found among seven and a half million Black citizens. Their stories of pathos and joy, disappointment and hope, are part of the story of the "Black Presence at White City.""--Jacket
