The Hotel Theresa is the stuff of legend, and one of the New York landmarks that established Harlem as a mecca of black culture. Meet Me at the Theresa is the first book devoted to the fabulous story of the Hotel Theresa. Though it closed its doors in 1970, there are still many who live to tell the tales -- and this lively social history is based on their first-hand accounts.

In mid-twentieth century America, Harlem was the cultural capital of African America and the Theresa was the place for black people to see and be seen. The hotel was known to have the hottest nightlife in the world and to be the only grand hotel in Manhattan that welcomed nonwhites.
