Trailtones: A Photographic Survey

Visit the Special Topics & Publications. Click on Trailtones: The African American Heritage of Arizona. On this, click on Part Two - Photographic Survey. There two pages with digital images from photographs of African Americans in Arizona history. To see an enlarged photograph, click once on the smaller image on these pages that you want to view. As you look at the photographs, think about what you have learned from your Internet explorations. Then select several photographs and, for each photograph you selected, compose a statement about African Americans in Arizona. For example, based on the first photo you might state,

African Americans served in the military in a variety of roles, such as the role of scout.

Try to make the statements general, not about only the person in the photograph, so they could apply to many of the African Americans who have lived in the Tucson area. List the numbers of the photographs and write the statements below. You may need to review some of the information in order to write appropriate statements.
