Old photos acquired from around the internet. I think they are fascinating. Maybe you do too?

Black boy reading with some onlookers. Little Black Sambo was originally written in 1899 and was a favorite book at the time. It was only later when Sambo became a racist term that the book became controversial. The story was well loved because the little boy was resourceful and outwitted some tigers. He was well dressed and smart. Like many other books at the time Sambo was crudely drawn in the image of a picaninny. The book was later changed to Sam and the Tigers and images changed to reflect a more realistic looking black child. A bit of African American history for you.
A girl and her dolls. Looks like she’s not giving any of them up any time soon.
