Black History Month
“I live now, only with strangers,
I talk to only strangers,
I walk with angels that have no place.”
–Springsteen and Streets of Fire
Back in February, I attended a banquet at the Oklahoma History Center in honor of Black History Month. I was happy to capture so many wonderful faces in the crowd. Here is one of my favorites. I don’t know his name, but he was unflinching in the face of my Nikon. He just smiled and said, “Why do you want to take my picture? There is nothing special here to see.”
I completely beg to differ, sir. Here are some images from the evening. Below is a gallery of the MLK Day Parade, 2014. Please credit JenX67.com if you use these images. Thanks!
