Photoville – the annual photography show in NYC – has photographic banners up in St. Nicholas Park, visible from St. Nicholas Avenue at 133rd Street. The show presents visiting cards – mass produced photographs of Black Americans in elegant clothing.
These 19th century photos show a Black middle-class that had fought to uplift themselves and their families in the aftermath of the collapse of Reconstruction and the surge in white terror that targeted any display of Black pride or success.
The exhibit is technically ‘over’, but likely to remain for a few days more. Make sure to walk by.
