This iconic silver gelatin print of some of the players from one of the first HBCUs established in Atlanta, Morris Brown College, was included as part of a collection highlighting African American contributions and bound for the Paris Exhibition of 1900. Noted activist and political thinker W.E.B. Du Bois kept this vintage photograph in his collection, and it is now part of the permanent collection in the Library of Congress. Brown was first established in 1881 as a private black liberal arts college affiliated with the African Methodist Episcopal Church and remains one of the most respected institutions of higher education in the nation.
By the latter portions of the nineteenth century, Atlanta had become a bustling metropolis and essential hub for African American activism as movements for equal rights were gaining traction across America as the country neared the turn of the century. The cultural importance of institutions like Brown provided important educational tools and attracted students from across the nation. Atlanta became a central railroad hub and bounced back rapidly following the conclusion of the American Civil War, with a major manufacturing industry bringing in large numbers of residents. The city would later play a significant role in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, led by influential leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
This image captures a distinct moment in the development of the United States culture and evolution. This photograph transports the viewer back in time, creating a bond between the past and present.
