The Face of Our Past: Images of Black Women from Colonial America to the PresentThe Face of Our Past: Images of Black Women from Colonial America to the Present by Kathleen Thompson (Editor), Hilary Mac Austin (Editor), Hilary Austin (Editor), Darlene Clark Hine (Introduction) Hardcover - 224 pages
Editorial Reviews
Maya Angelou: "It is wonderful to view the pictures of these women. Their intelligence and kindness are evident in the photographs. I am inspired by their stories and their brave hearts."
Carol Moseley Braun: "This is a beautiful and important book. It puts a face on the most faceless Americans, black women, and in so doing gives honor to the universal human values those faces reflect."
Gloria Steinem: "The Face of Our Past helps to make invisible women visible. Out of African American and very particular lives, each woman looks with universal human eyes."
Paula Giddings, author of a forthcoming biography of Ida B. Wells: "History for the eyes and heart."
A Shining Thread of Hope by Darlene Clark Hine, Kathleen Thompson (Paperback - January 5, 1999) Other Editions: Hardcover | Paperback
This history of the experience of black women opens with an account of the life of Lucy Terry, who was brought as a slave to Deerfield, Massachusetts, when she was a child in about 1735. At 16, Terry wrote a poem, Bars Fight, the first work of literature by a black American. Years later, married and free, Terry argued for the admission of her son to Williams College and, when a white man tried to take her family's land, she took the case to the U.S. Supreme Court. Terry's story is typical of those in A Shining Thread of Hope, which brings together centuries of achievement by black women. As coauthors Darlene Clark Hine and Kathleen Thompson put it, "The extraordinary achievements of black women in the 19th and 20th centuries did not grow out of degradation but out of a legacy of courage, resourcefulness, initiative, and dignity that goes back to 1619."

Hidden Witness: African American Images from the Dawn of Photography to the Civil War by Jackie Napolean Wilson
Book Description: Whether as slaves or as freedmen, African-Americans were virtually invisible in American history during the l9th century. Although photography was introduced to this country in l840, precious few images of African-Americans survive today. Even after the Civil War there were not many African-American photographers, and very few black people had the time, money or freedom for a portrait sitting. Consequently, little photographic evidence remains to bear witness to the lives of four and a half...
Editorial Reviews
The image is striking: A woman gazes serenely at the camera, baby cradled in her arms in classic Madonna-and-child pose. More striking is the fact that the sitters are black, and the photograph dates from 1860. Few photographs from the mid-19th century feature African Americans, enslaved or free. Those that do are often staged and reflect the biases of the photographer or the printmaker who published them. Others, however, provide glimpses of daily life before the abolition of slavery.
Renowned collector of early photographs, Jackie Napolean Wilson has compiled 70 such images in Hidden Witness. Some of the subjects are famous, such as Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass; others, though unknowns, carry a force of their own: the exuberant grin of the prizewinning boxer, the proud stance of a Union soldier, the quiet dignity of a slave nurse. A handsome addition to the history of African Americans and photography. --Sunny Delaney7
