A groundbreaking study that presents over 200 powerful images of black Texans taken by five generations of relatively unknown black photographers. Many of the images are full-page.  
  
In addition to the introductory essays and interviews, this also features the work of NAACP photographers who documented the Civil Rights movement and captured images of Martin Luther King, Thurgood Marshall, Barbara Jordan, and others.  
  
Also includes biographies of selected photographers working in the mid-20th century, a directory of photographers covering 1866-1994, and a listing of selected African American newspapers and magazines in Texas.
