Periodically I will post vintage photographs featuring African-Americans. I love looking at old vintage photos and ephemera. What I have found lacking though are African-Americans in collectible vintage photographs. Slowly the tide is turning and images of African-Americans from “back in the day” are popping up. I feel that these old photographs are important because it gives the present generation a clearer view of black people during the 19th century on up to the 1970’s.
The following photographs are specifically portraiture images. I love everything about these photos from the stylish clothing to the expressions on their faces.
