Road, Rapp

Rapp Road is a historically black community in Albany, New York. Most of the families who live there came from the town of Shubuta in Clarke County, MS. In the 1930’s and 1940’s many African-Americans left Clarke County for a better life to live in New York. Today the Rapp Road Community is part of the New York State historic district.
