1880 Vintage Academic Black Man Sketch Photo

Your Treasure Is Waiting! Description: I bought this vintage piece to try and find out this man’s name. I have done some research. There is an address on the back of the frame. It is the photograph shop he went to. I found that it has been closed and out of business since the middle 1900′s. I found through journals from that period of history that Black people were freed from the plantations. There was great excitement in Ohio, Pennsylvanian, Virginia, and the lower southern states. The excitement came from the Black communities to enroll in schools and colleges and become educated for the first time ever in their lives. This gentleman along with several other left their plantations and relocated to Ohio to attend their colleges. They were not allowed to attend any of the White schools. Blacks had built and ran their own colleges. Thus, this first group of Black gentlemen attending college had their sketch photos done in their academic clothing to document the beginning of a new area for them and other who would follow. This particular photo really touches my heart. You can see that the gentleman has fair skin, light brown eyes, and he has a sadness in his eyes. My belief is he was a product of the slave owner. He was seeking a better life of education without poverty. The item must be in like new condition/same condition upon receiving.
