All the World is Here!: The Black Presence at White City
author, Christopher Robert Reed
Bloomington : Indiana University Press, ©2000

"The 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago showed the world that America had come of age. African Americans, dreaming that they could participate fully as citizens, flocked to the fair by the thousands. "All the World Is Here!" examines why they came and the ways in which they participated in the Exposition." "According to Reed, African Americans' expectations of the fair varied, reflecting the disparate interests and backgrounds found among seven and a half million Black citizens. Their stories of pathos and joy, disappointment and hope, are part of the story of the "Black Presence at White City.""--Jacket

Book

Celebrating the New World : Chicago's Columbian Exposition of 1893
author, Robert Muccigrosso
Chicago : I.R. Dee, ©1993

Part of the "American Ways" series.  It was the most astonishing fair ever. "The grandest exposition this planet has ever witnessed," wrote one observer of the Columbian Exposition. A spectacular neoclassical "White City" designed by the nation's leading architects under the direction of Daniel Burnham; innumerable exhibits of science, technology, and the arts from throughout the world; a meeting place for a remarkable variety of social, intellectual, and religious groups; and a Midway of sometimes up-lifting, sometimes exotic attractions - all staged in that boisterous and fascinating city of wealth, culture, and corruption, Chicago. But the Columbian Exposition was also a telling portrait of American society at the turn of the nineteenth century. No event better illustrated the American rise to world power, better reflected American tastes and values, or better presaged the American Century to come. Robert Muccigrosso explores the history, substance, and larger meaning of the fair in this lively survey.

author, David Stone

It is incredible than an open conference with speakers representing all religions would have convened during the staid Victorian era, and certainly it could have occurred--in the Western Hemisphere--only in the United States. The World's Parliament of Religions was held at the Art Institute of Chicago at the beginning of fall in 1893. There were 250 major talks given before an audience of thousands distributed between two large halls.
