This is an intriguing photograph. I’ve been unable to verify the caption which says the photo was taken on July 4th c. 1900 in Louisiana. *If you just want a cute baby picture with no historical context, stop reading here* * * * * Attempts to find out more about the image led me to an article in The Atlantic (seemingly unconnected to the photo) called “When the Fourth of July was a Black Holiday” by Ethan J Kytle and Blain Roberts. Apparently, after the civil war, Black southerners began celebrating July 4th as a day of emancipation. So annoyed by this were the (former) slavers and their supporters that July 4th was barely celebrated by white southerners until the early 20th century. With that in mind, this photo can be read as a defiant image. Whatever the circumstances may be, I hope this child lived to see the end of segregation. Here’s the link to the article if you’re interested: /ideas/archive/2018/07/fourth-of-july-black-holiday/564320/ #oldphoto #snapshot #historylover #Blackhistory #americanhistory #herstory #1900s #victorian #edwardian #researchingtheromance
