"New York City's first Afro-American Day parade, held in September 1969, was a moment of pride and solidarity — a much-needed celebration after years of struggle and strife. Seventh Avenue in Manhattan was renamed "the Avenue of the Africans" for the event, and the @nytimes article the following day included a photo of the gathered crowd. This quieter but compelling image by the @nytimes staff photographer Donal F. Holway, however, did not make it into the newspaper.
Every weekday this #blackhistorymonth, we'll be sharing unpublished photos from the @nytimes's archives that reveal major moments in black history. If you recognize someone in a photo or can recall the moment pictured, please let us know in the comments. #UnpublishedBlackHistory" By nytimes on Instagram.
