This original work illustrates the storied history of Southern Pines, focusing specifically on the merging of the East and West sides. West Southern Pines, whose population was comprised entirely of African Americans, became one of the first chartered towns governed by and for a minority in 1923. However, in 1931, the dominantly white East side, a resort community, annexed the West. Using a myriad of historical photographs, authors Sara Lindau and Pamela M. Blue share the story of how the two sides of Southern Pines endured a tumultuous period of unification. The images allow the reader to take a step back in history and witness the everyday lives of both the white population and the black residents of the area, who made a living catering to the privileged vacationers and celebrities.
