Black Man Painting
 

"A black man painting a store front on South Wabash Street. One of the nearly 1.2 million people of his race who make up over a third of Chicago's population. It is one of the many black faces in this project that portray life in all its seasons. In short, they are portraits of human beings who feel they are individuals and are proud of their heritage. Their faces mirror pride, love, beauty, hope, struggle, joy, hate, frustration, discontent, worship, and faith."

A black man painting a store front on South Wabash Street. July 1973 (NWDNS-412-DA-13702)
