Description: As slaves, African Americans were virtually invisible to history. Even after the Civil War there were not many African American photographers, and very few black people had the time, money or freedom for a portrait sitting. Consequently only a few hundred such pictures have survived from that time to bear witness to African-Americans and the lives they led.

Jackie Napolean Wilson, whose own grandfather was born a slave in South Carolina between 1853 and 1855, has assembled the most comprehensive and significant collection of such images ever brought together in one place. The concrete reality of daguerreotypes and tintypes presents these men and women in situations and attire that bring the truth of their daily lives much closer to us. Scenes of maternal affection, matrimony, war and the grim reality of the master/slave relationship help focus our perceptions of the African American experience in America in ways not otherwise available to the modern reader off history.
