African American Women from the 1890s Albums of WEB Dubois

These photos come from Du Bois, W. E. B. (William Edward Burghardt), 1868-1963. Du Bois' albums of photographs of African Americans in Georgia were exhibited at the Paris Exposition Universelle in 1900. These are part of the Library of Congress collection of African American Photograph collection assembled for that 1900 Paris Exposition. They are part of the Prints & Photographs Online Catalog of the Library of Congress. There are many more to see online.
