1850 Oscar Menard and Nurse


1896 Southern Nigerian King of Calabar and his family
(notice the European influence in the clothes and style of the crown)


1860s


1864 Sojourner Truth
Famous (and truly Amazing) Abolitionist and
Women's Rights Activist, as well as a former slave.
Do look up her 'Ain't I A Woman?' speech.
(given at the 1851 Ohio Women's Rights Convention)


1902 Grandchildren of Slaves


1915 J. Leubrie Hill and his famous Dark Town Follies of 1914 and 1915


1910 A Hampton University student in her room
