EMANCIPATION DAY PHOTOGRAPH KEY

EMANCIPATION DAY CELEBRATION FOR BOOKER T WASHINGTON HOUSE
ADDENDUM: Identified Persons in the August 1, 1927 Photograph


Small version of the Emancipation Day 1927 photograph.

To see a large segmented version of the photograph without the names return to the EMANCIPATION DAY article. Also you can learn more about this historic event there too.


Since the publication of the original article July 31, 1994, we have been able to identify most of the persons in the Emancipation Day photograph with the help of many persons. We are adding these to this internet version of the article. The photo is split into four segmented parts. The identity of the known persons is pasted next to the face (mostly below the face).
