The Fruit

The Smithsonian American Art Museum has an online exhibit of tremendous photographs of Black life in the US taken during the last century. This photograph, taken in my old ‘hood (125th Street in Harlem), profiles the men in the Nation of Islam (with copies of The Final Call newspaper in hand).

At the time this picture was taken (1992), the image is as striking as it would have been in 1952.
