Mammy, I Jes' Wants a Chance. Eugene A. Perry.

Mammy, I Jes' Wants a Chance

n.p. c. 1904. Black & white print (of a photograph) on textured paper. Image size approximately 15 x 10cm. Title appears as a caption beneath the picture as does "The Perry Pictures. 7628. Boston Edition." Recently framed (with glass). The picture shows a small African American boy sitting on a box and staring at his mother who wearing a head rag and sitting in a rocker on a rickety porch. We know nothing further about Mr. Perry. What we do know is that this picture must have been the inspiration for Otis Galbreath's "Let Bygones Be Bygones" which belongs to Clark Atlanta University Galleries and was reproduced in "To Conserve a Legacy...". Galbreath's picture is a very close copy of Perry's picture with some minor differences. Item #60906

Price: $125.00
