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 entitled, “Negroes’ Day Celebrated”, we see this great image of thousands of African Americans observing Emancipation Day on April 3, 1905 in Richmond, VA.
