The purpose of this blog is to create a place where images of Black Americana can be shared openly with the public since there are no other online galleries at present. Although Black Americana can be controversial, with some people considering it worthy of being destroyed, I believe that these items need to be preserved as reminders of what mankind is capable of. The hatred, prejudice and racism that spurned the creation of many such propaganda has not died completely, rather it pulses today quietly lying in wait like a smoldering fire waiting on the wind.
