Vintage Black Beauties

Vintage Black Beauties

An archive remixing research project celebrating the beauty of women of the black diaspora in vintage style because I love discovering old pictures that are new to me (and I wanted a place to save them). People don't have to be glamorous or famous to be beautiful.

Photos found on the net. Links provided. Not owned by me.
