A taste of freedom: black America in the 19th century – in pictures | Art and design | The Guardian

I am fortunate to have some photos dating back to the 19th Century from my Dad’s side. 

I have shared these family photos in the past but let me include a few for this post. Some of these pictures might have been taken in the early 20th century but most were done in the Nineteenth Century.

    1. Thanks. One of the Blessings my Dad left to me after his death.

      The blog post article is also informative.

      Since I don’t have children I plan to leave the original pictures to the African American Smithsonian museum in Washington, DC.

      1. Actually that’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I need to make a new will. One that reflects my current situation. Either I’ll do it on or around my birthday at the end of this month or when I go on vacation next month. Having a Last Will and Testament is very important.
