Moments in Black History from the NY Times

The New York Times has a terrific spread of unpublished photographs of black leaders and entertainers. The paper plans to add photographs each day during February in honor of Black History Month.

Today's story includes unpublished photographs of MartinLuther King, Lena Horne, Malcolm X, and Adam Clayton Powell. Other images include the Prayer Pilgrimage for Freedom at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington on May 17, 1957, and images detailing the limits of integration.

The images are all black and white with rich detail and all come from the paper's archives. The Times will publish at least one each day during Black History Month.

And the stories behind the images add context that students will enjoy.
