The Kid Stays In The Picture

(pic via 1 Photo Central)

Henry Clay Anderson was a Black school teacher turned professional photographer who started his own business in 1948 – Anderson Photo Services. As a result,  he contributed rich, timeless pictures that depict the struggle and celebration during a period of  blatant segregation (I say ‘blatant’ b/c on so many levels segregation still exists with eyes wide shut). For more of his amazing photographs/photologs, check out his book Separate, But Equal: The Mississippi Photographs of Henry Clay Anderson.
