Praise

Included in Publishers Weekly‘s Fall 2023 Adult Announcements Art, Architecture & Photography Top 10 List

“Taylor’s work shines a light on this trailblazing figure in history.”
Essence

“Taylor chronicles the life and work of Amaza Lee Meredith, a Black woman architect, artist, and educator who expanded our understanding of the Great Migration and the Harlem Renaissance. Using Meredith as a lens to study the role architecture played in early twentieth-century Black middle-class identity, Taylor shows that Meredith, like so many other Black cultural producers, wasn’t marginal to the modernist project but rather central to its definition.”
—The Millions

“This book is about rather more than Meredith’s life story […] Taylor uses this as the lens for exploring the wider societal context of Meredith’s life as an independent professional Black woman ploughing her own course during the inter-war years in America.”
