Lifestyle “Black is Beautiful” proponent Kwame Brathwaite: Photography to restore Black pride

Kwame Brathwaite is a documentary photographer who chronicled the cultural, political and social developments of Harlem and co-founded the African Jazz Art Society and Studios. He staged a series of pageants that featured only black models, which helped popularise the phrase “Black Is Beautiful”. This is also the title of his upcoming book.
