Come learn about the history of Atlantic City from one of Atlantic Cape’s own!
Ms. Raheem was born and raised in Atlantic City. She self-published a book chronicling her past entitled “Growing Up in the Other Atlantic City: Wash’s and the Northside.” Raheem’s Atlantic City was a far cry from the current casino dominated culture. It offered a vibrant black community with a Northside neighborhood filled with “soul-food restaurants, beauty parlors, barber shops, bakeries, drugstores, butcher shops and photography businesses.”
