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 “The Great Gatsby, 1932” . The picture shows An African American couple strike a pose wearing matching racoon fur coats. West 127th Street, Harlem NYC, 1932. James Van Der Zee, photographer.
