At Black Then, we frequently see interesting photos that give us a glimpse into the past. They tend to show us a piece of black history that is often not covered in textbooks, in history classes, or shown in the media.
In a photo that we found on Black History Album , we see this great image called “African American Man” . The picture, taken in 1890, shows a man seated in a double-breasted jacket and tie, with his hair closely cut and parted in the middle.
