    'City Within a City': The recent history of blacks living in Biloxi

    African Americans living in Biloxi, Mississippi.

    Before integration, there was a community in East Biloxi, Mississippi called “Back of Town” AAs would go to work in the city, and then return to this area after a day of work. The barbershop I used to go to is located here, and my barber used to always talk of “Black Biloxi”. His barbershop was on the strip. You had a gang of churches, juke joints, and black food establishments. With the air force base being nearby, you’d have all of the black airmen from out of town living and having a good time in the area. The beaches down there were even segregated.

    i actually live in WSNC.. its very rich in history..

    matter of fact, i just shared a story the other day of a AA who had a brick masonry here.. and, over 80% of not only RJ Reynolds, but downtown Winston-Salems buildings were made from his bricks..

    just found out theres a statue of him downtown.. also a museum i just found out about downtown, and its got alot of dope AA history in it..

    also- if you have time/can find it.. African-American History in North Carolina(Crow, Escott & Hatley) is a great read..
