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 “Past, Present, Future?” . The picture shows A bunch of poor black folk in line for bread rations after the Louisville Flood in 1937. Standing behind them, fa billboard that says, “World’s Highest Standard of Living – There’s no way like the American Way.” Margaret Bourke-White, photographer.
