Time capsule of a seemingly ordinary African-American family, containing wonderfully BORING photos of interracial Christmas celebrations. The present photo album contains 109 color photos taken ca. 1962-1977. Remarkable are the nine photographs of black and white friends and family, apparently enjoying each other's company on Christmas and New Years' Eve. Others photos include mom, dad, the kids / family & friends visiting / ladies posing / Christmas trees / siblings together / kids in group shots / football & High School graduation / hanging around at home / a trip to Boot Hill Cemetery, Dodge City, Kansas / a lazy cat, and much more. Notable also is the photo of Robert Kennedy placed in the living room. The name of this family has escaped us, but deserves to be rediscovered.
