Redditor JesusJones207 posted this photo of his grandmother with an explanation… “My grandmother is very ill with alzheimer’s. At her brother’s house, we found this amazing photo. I took a picture with my phone, hoping that someone here would want to retouch it, and maybe add color?”
In 1863 and 1864, eight former slaves toured the northern states to raise money for impoverished African-American schools in New Orleans; four children with mixed-race ancestry and pale complexions were deliberately included to evoke sympathy from white northerners. Photographs of Charles Taylor, Rebecca Huger, Rosina Downs, and Augusta Broujey were mass-produced and sold as part of the campaign.
