"People watched a boxing match on TV in #Harlem in 1966. In August that year, @nytimes ran a story about how Harlem residents wished more white people would visit the neighborhood. The article described Harlem in an almost anthropological way. Alongside the text ran 4 images by Don Hogan Charles, the first black photographer hired by @nytimes. The images he made reveal a much-different Harlem than the one portrayed in the text. We'll be sharing more of Don's photos this #nytweekender, as part of our #UnpublishedBlackHistory series. Visit the link in our profile to read the original 1966 article, and see more photos of #UnpublishedBlackHistory." By nytimes on Instagram.
