Flash Black Photo: Howard University Queen Contestants – 1947

0 Posted by - January 22, 2019 - AMAZING IMAGES, Photo Gallery

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 College Queen Contestants” . The picture shows Howard University queen contestants sitting on a couch in 1947.
