    from the 1800s. I thought it would be interesting to post pictures of some African/Black Americans from the 1800s. NOW, I just don't like looking at fine black menz half nekkid all the time. We know I love me some chocolate men but I do like looking at historic photos or old styles, fashions and trends and folks with their clothes on as well. I like to compare things in the past to how they are today, especially with Blacks. I tend sit back and observe through these generational shifts. I think some of the pics if not all, showcase black excellence in their own unique way. I'm always interested in the many possible stories that can sprout from photos. Often wondering what they did before and after the photo? What their day to day life was like? What were they thinking on that day?

    I keep having this thought of someone picking up a book 200 years from now and researching about our time and all that.
    We'll be dead and gone by then but it's still interesting. You never know when a person may decide to look up their ancestry and one of your photos appears.
    The I research, someone will be doing the same many years from now, uncovering candid photos of our time.

    Apparently, the internet saves things forever and what not, so what if someone stumbles upon one of these posts 50 years from now. Hope they don't see one of my post talking bout nekkid black menz...How embarrassing...lol

    I don't know that any of those pictures exist between my two families - if so they've never been shared with me. Both sides are really small. The extent of my exposure has been great grandparents but I remember them when they were alive.

    I think it's interesting that at the moment I'm looking back on a period in history and so many years from now, someone may be doing the same.

    No one knows us personally or how we look...well maybe except for that face pic thread...and some of you that hang out together...but whoever finds this old page or site if it still archived or whatever may be wow'd.

    There are currently websites that were created in 1994 and are still running...so 24 years (which isn't a long time from now) but still, someone may be seeing pictures or reading about you as a piece of history.

    I wonder what will be the state of Black Gay Men 2042. Most of will still be alive if the Universe works in our favor..so I wonder if you'll get to think back to this time period and be like, "Y'all had it easier than I did. Back in my day we had drive to work. We didn't have the luxury of teleportation like y'all do."

    And then all the young kids call you an old fart and laugh!!

    I'm.getting sorta off topic but I'll create another thread for it!

    You should maybe start archiving stuff. I sadly realized after some older family members passed nobody was actually creating a proper genealogy of the family. As a kid I kind of just thought one of the older members was already doing it. So much stuff i wish I had recorded or information I should of asked for before they passed. As a black person, it just soo interesting (at least to me lol) to see what our ancestors over came and endured.

    Sorry for my rant lol I just think black genealogy is cool and interesting. :p:D
