Description

In this one-of-a-kind book, attorney and author Lawrence Otis Graham escorts you inside the insular world of the black upper class. Following six years of interviews, Graham weaves together the stories of more than 300 prominent families and individuals along with his own experiences. Their world of exclusive play groups, cotillions, and elite golf clubs comes colorfully to life with the gossipy, poignant prose. But he also exposes the unwritten requirements of membership-the "brown paper bag and ruler test," and of course, wealth and connections. A firsthand look into a very private community, Our Kind of People introduces the network of elite black families dating back to the first black millionaires of the 1880s.
