I call this image “Six to One” because it shows six men and one woman. In Uptown, during the mid-1970s, it was common to see men congregating on sidewalks in front of bars, day-labor agencies, and check cashing stores. Since starting this blog, I’ve talked to several female residents of Uptown who said they were always wary when walking past such groups. Even if they weren’t threatened, they felt intimidated. One told me she carried brass knuckles and felt the not-so-subtle stares as she walked down streets like this.
