old school.

i am so, so, so obsessed with the library of congress digital collection of prints and photographs. this image is from 1899!

[Four African American women seated on steps of building at Atlanta University, Georgia]

i know that the image above is black and white…
and you can't tell what those ensembles really look like…
and i am definitely NOT saying that things were better back then…
but isn't it fairly safe to say that the image below constitutes a downgrade?
