Ever Wondered How Slaves Really Looked?

It is important for every race of humans to know their history. Due to slavery in America, African-Americans  were not considered human enough to be properly included in the census or have any form of archives.

In these photos, you will see rare pictures of actual  African- American slaves. Notice the males and their body language. Some of this body language is still mimicked by todays African American men. Notice their facial expressions, you can see the despair, the attitude, the disdain for their establishment. In their eyes, you can see their tired souls.

These photos are a rare glimpse into our past.
