Summary
"The phenomenon of a "midnight mayor," a black man who took care of the social and political needs of his community at a time when few could vote or had any legitimate political power, is an interesting one, but it was not uncommon during Henry Smith's lifetime. It is safe to say that each southern city of size during the Jim Crow era had a black person who was able to speak for and manage the affairs of the African American neighborhoods. Henry Smith's biogrpahy is important in preserving one such story."
