African American woman in striped dress

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 woman in striped dress” . The picture shows Portraits of African Americans from the Alvan S. Harper Collection (1884-1910)

    It’s good to see a visual presentation of people of color as sophisticated persons in the aftermath of the era of slavery.
