Black Seminole woman and child. — The Black Seminoles are an offshoot of the Gullah who escaped from rice plantations in Georgia and South Carolina. They built their own settlements on the Florida frontier, fought a series of wars to preserve their freedom and were scattered across North America.They have played a significant role in American history but have never received the recognition they deserve.

This week in Eyes on the South we revisit John Lusk Hathaway and his photos of a small Gullah community outside Charleston, South Carolina, from his series One Foot in Eden or The Battle of Sol Legare.

NYC in the 1980s.

Love.

Memories.


After picking up a camera at the age of 15, Jamel Shabazz has been unknowingly become the first “visual documentarian” of hip hop. For over 30 years he’s captured the world around him. Every frame  of that world is a time portal that sparks emotion stemming from the scenes they represent. And if there is ever a glimpse into the foundations of street wear and its surrounding culture, it can be found in the pages of his first book.

“Back In The Days” is real deal documentation as it pertains to the origins of hip hop, not to mention hip hop fashion. No 2oK a day models. No makeup artists. No food trucks. The models in the book don’t need runways because they lived the life of style. Jamel Shabazz was there to capture it all.”

Octopuses decorate their “front yards” by placing shells and remnants of their meals outside of their dens. This is how divers find them when they’re hiding. Source
