This shot was taken less than ten years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was signed into law by Lyndon Johnson and while the nation was still struggling with massive civil rights issues that dwarf those of today. I call it “Black and White.” The young lady appears in several other shots that I took in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood during the mid-1970s. She hung out with Harrison Gents for the most part, but was also friendly with Latin Kings like this young man. The Gents and Kings coexisted peacefully in the 70s. The image speaks to how integrated Uptown was at the time. The man eventually escaped the gang culture in Chicago by moving to Alabama. He died in 2003 of esophageal cancer. I do not know what happened to her.
