The year is 1850. I love black culture. I love the major contributions people of color have made in the areas of science, music, sports, humanities . . . These are peoples toughened by oppression, who overcame the hurdles of life and emerged victorious. Here is a slave photographed in 1850. All anyone seems to know about him is, his name is Jack. Despite his lowly state as a slave, in this portriait, an unshakable sense of dignity and inner strength shines through.
