George Santayana, the Spanish philosopher, essayist, poet and novelist, is remembered for his oft-quoted warning, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." Atlantic City is blessed to have for reflection and discussion the recently published book by Nelson Johnson, "The Northside - African Americans and the Creation of Atlantic City." The book gives us the opportunity to read about the existence of significant institutions and people who once were essential to the stability, sustenance and survival of Atlantic City's predominantly black Northside in the past. It is important to remember the positives these people and institutions represented without repeating the racial segregation that shaped their success and failures.
