The Scurlocks were a family of photographers who shot weddings, birthday parties, dances, family portraits, city scenes, and historic figures-all capturing an unforgettable vision of Black life. They worked mostly in Washington DC capturing so many events and people from the 1930's until the early 90's. I found their work looking through books at the publiclibrary and I think more people should know abt them.
I'll be doing these drawings all month and i invite any artists to participate in drawing, collaging, photographing, or just posting photos of black folks for Black history month because "BlackisBeautiful" Peace! #artofrobertliutrujillo
