Rare Photos of Victorian Women of Color

Feminist Elizabethan

Historical photographs of women of color (WOC) can be hard to find, but Bust did just this.

In a recent post, Bust featured several photographs of Victorian WOC, and in the photos, various WOC can be seen posing while wearing the fashions of the time (my fave is the woman lounging on a chaise). Some of these photos can be found below, and to check out even more historical photos of people of color, go to Black History Album.
