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 “Girl holding a fan standing behind a gate” . The picture shows Portraits of African Americans from the Alvan S. Harper Collection (1884-1910)
