Screenplay about East Harlem

Hello, I'm writing a screenplay about East Harlem. Set in early 1950's when the area was really segregated. I'm a little young to know what happen so... if anyone can point me to a book, Documentary it would be a great help. I saw a documentary on the Old Timers Day on TV anyone know how to get my hands on it.

Thanks again

Segregated?? Don't remember anything about that.
I was born in 47 and Grandparents were from Italy.
All schools I attended had Italians, Afro-amer' and Puerto
Ricans. That seemed to be so in both public and Catholic
schools
Tenements I lived in were populated by both Italians
and Puerto Ricans. Blacks were in the projects on 1st
avenue
From 1910 on to WW2, East Harlem was populated
by mostly working class Italians. After WW2 Puerto Ricans
emigrated, tenements were slowly torn down and projects
put up.
Many of the Italians , because their buildings were being
condemned for "urban renewal" moved to the Bronx.
Those that could afford such, bought houses in the sububurbs
Glad we stayed til the late 60's for we then got the best
of all ethnic groups
Music was dy-no-mite. I grew up listening to opera, sinatra
doo-wop, motown and salsa.
But I never saw any signs of segregation. We all went
to Jefferson Pool, Boy's Club, Harlem House, 102, OLQA
and Franklin.
