Bengali Harlem and the Lost Histories of South Asian America, Paperback / softback Book

Bengali Harlem and the Lost Histories of South Asian America Paperback / softback

Description

Nineteenth-century Muslim peddlers arrived at Ellis Island, bags heavy with silks from their villages in Bengal.

Demand for Oriental goods took these migrants on a curious path, from New Jersey's boardwalks to the segregated South.

Bald's history reveals cross-racial affinities below the surface of early twentieth-century America.
