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 “Yo! Baby Girl | 1880” . The picture shows Full length portrait, young African American baby seated in dark chair, wearing white christening clothes, ca. 1880. Randolph L. Simpson African-American collection. Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University.
