Unseen: Unpublished Black History


Across 304 pages, “Unseen: Unpublished Black History” reveals hundreds of images from the New York Times archives that have never been published. Raising many questions (what stories were they commissioned for, how do they compare to the ones that may have been published, were the people in the photographs not seen as newsworthy, or perhaps were the images were turned in after publication, etc), the collection of images is quite striking—illustrating everyday and extraordinary moments.
