Booker T. Washington Portrait Photo, 1895, Black and White Photography, African American Art by HistoricalPix

Booker T. Washington, Seated, Half Portrait, 1895. Mr. Washington was an American educator, author, orator, and advisor to presidents of the United States. Between 1890 and 1915, Washington was the dominant leader in the African-American community. (Born April 5, 1856 – Died November 14, 1915).

Washington was from the last generation of black American leaders born into slavery and became the leading voice of the former slaves and their descendants. They were newly oppressed in the South by disenfranchisement and the Jim Crow discriminatory laws enacted in the post-Reconstruction Southern states in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Historical Pix's artwork collection is curated to offer prints that personally resonate with you. These prints bridge the past to the present through the beautiful art of places, people and ideas.

All artwork is printed on premium archival photo paper using Giclee archival pigment inks which means they will never fade or turn yellow. Please note, no mat or frame is included. Most prints are standard photo sizes (8×10, 11×14, 16×20, 20×24, 24×30, 24×36) making it easy to purchase mats/frames at your local home goods store. All photo sizes are printed with at least a quarter inch border. Larger sizes may have a slightly larger border (up to a 1/2") which is taped to the back of a mat board. If this is a problem, please message me when you place your order. These handsome prints will look stunning in your home or office any way you choose to display them. For unique framing ideas, please visit my Pinterest Store at www.pinterest.com/HistoricalPixPrints/photo-framing-ideas/.

Hours are spent cleaning each picture using professional software. This includes removing dust, scratches and optimizing the exposure for printing while enhancing the original details. Please note that different sizes have different aspect ratios which means your photo may be cropped a little differently depending on the size.

If you are looking for a specific photo, or customization, please let me know and I may be able to provide it for you.

All prints come with a 1/4" border for matting purposes. If you want a full bleed (your photo to go from end to end), please convo me after ordering).

I ship quickly and safely – large prints will arrive in a rigid mail tube. I ship First Class and Priority. Although First Class is cheaper it can take the USPS up to 3.5 weeks to deliver (it may not, but sometimes there are delays, especially during the holidays). On the other hand, Priority is 2-3 days, insured and tracked.
