Harlem is one of the most famous neighbourhoods in the world - an historic symbol of both black cultural achievement and of the rigid boundaries separating the rich from the poor. But as this book shows, Harlem is far more culturally and economically diverse than its caricature suggests: through extensive fieldwork and interviews, John L. Jackson reveals a variety of social networks and class stratifications, and explores how African Americans interpret and perform different class identities in their everyday behaviour.
