Preston Holley's Individual Response
1) Some of the more subtle ideas portrayed in our slideshow other than white supremacy are ideas of the subjugation of African culture. Many of the pictures show the African Americans acting in American ways, dressing in American clothes, and contributing the American lifestyle. There is a lack of portrayal for the culture of Africans, giving a sense of cultural subjugation of the part of the African Americans.
2) I found it most surprising that most of the pictures were able to show both white and blacks on an equal playing field if you will. There isn't much stratification being shown in the majority of the pictures we chose to showcase, which I found rather surprising considering the time period.
Arta Fan's Individual Response
1) One of the more subtle nuances conveyed in the images other than white supremacy is the idea of Feminism. Especially in the picture with Topsy in the rain, it shows how females stick up for each other and take care of each other.
2) I found it surprising that all of the pictures that we chose showed that the whites and the Africans were bonding together and mingling. Especially in a time of such segregation, it was surprising to find such the opposite in all the pictures.
