Cherry Hill Township Honors Black History Month

The Northside:
African Americans and the Creation of Atlantic City
(follow-up to "Boardwalk Empire")

An evening with Nelson Johnson, author of the acclaimed, "Boardwalk Empire"

Thursday, February 6
7 p.m.,
FREE

Cherry Hill Public Library
Conference Center (lower level)
1100 N. Kings Hwy.

"The Northside," author Nelson Johnson's award-winning follow-up to "Boardwalk Empire," brings the untold story of Atlantic City's black community vividly to life, from the arrival of the first African Americans to Absecon Island in the early 19th century through the glory days of the "World's Playground."

Exploited for their labor and banished to the most undesirable part of town, resilient Northsiders created a vibrant city within a city - a place where black culture could thrive and young people could aspire to become artists, athletes, educators, and leaders of business, politics, and society. As Nelson Johnson shows in this unflinching portrait, Atlantic City was built on their toil - and the Northside was born of their dreams.

Drawing on dozens of personal interviews and painstaking archival research, he reveals long-forgotten details about the people on whose backs the gambling mecca was built and offers a wide-ranging survey of the accomplishments of more recent generations.

A representative from Plexus Publishing will be at the event to introduce Judge Johnson and give a brief account of how Judge Johnson initially went to Plexus with his manuscript and how HBO picked it up as a series. He will also discuss how Boardwalk Empire inspired Judge Johnson to write The Northside.
