Boss of the Grips


Word Up Community Bookshop, 165th St and Amsterdam Avenue, New York

Historian and friend, Eric K Washington, talking about the life and times of James Williams, as captured in his new book, “Boss of the Grips,” at Word Up Community Bookstore on December 5th. Well worth reading, the book tells the remarkable story of Williams but also relays black life in NYC starting in the late 19th century and extending to the middle of the 20th.
