Carl, for some reason your photo didn't work on my laptop or ipad. But thanks for posting it! Googling, maybe it's this one?
Carl, a 1941 licence plate in Illinois with those very nicely dressed young men rocks my memory ... actually, the car style does. I was five years old, living in Las Vegas on Dec 7, 1941. I remember that day well.
I wonder what did become of those boys? What was their life like? Did they have opportunity for good educations, living-wage jobs? Good housing?
Beautiful photographs. Here's an iconic picture taken in Chicago. I could stare at this for hours wondering about the lives of these boys.
Daniel, you find the most interesting pieces and photos! I love this set. Reposting on Twitter and Facebook with attribution to you.
I am often moved when looking into the eyes of people from the past, via their images. Much of what we see of black and other people of color from the 19th and 20th century shows inhumane degradation of human beings. These links show something else - beauty and dignity.

Peter Jackson, 2 December 1889. Born in 1860 in St Croix, then the Danish West Indies, Jackson was a boxing champion who spent long periods of time touring Europe....
I had the pleasure to meet at least three of them while I was at Xerox. A couple were customers. Another was a friend's husband. A Barry Rand now is the CEO of AARP. I worked for Barry at Xerox. There are others. Former NBA player, Dave Bing runs a steel company. There several in the music industry. The CEO at Xerox is a black woman. Those are just a few, but they're out there, just not in the number you might expect.
t's not a large number, far smaller than one would expect from a random cross section of demographics, but there are CEOs who are not white men. I know of some but diversity inc has a better list.
Based on personal experience with a diverse succession of CEOs, I don't think ethnicity or gender make for a company that is more compassionate, less aggressive, or less obnoxious. What we aim for in diversity at the top, is for anyone to be the most Machiavellian, greedy, ruthless ass, regardless of race or gender. Until we achieve that, the world will not be a fair place
Those lawsuits are needed.
