The heyday of Pittsburgh's Hill District lasted from the 1930s through the 1950s, and this eloquent documentary recaptures it all... the music clubs that attracted both black and white, the best Negro League baseball teams in America, the church picnics and family businesses that comprised the essence of life in this vibrant neighborhood.
