    Wish these could have been published sooner. So many are no longer with us to maybe be able to help.

      There’s always a possibility that duplicate identified pictures exist. At least, I hope so. There are more pictures on this page from the Archives http://www.archives.alabama.gov/who_are_these_people/who_Are.html

  3. Barbara Thomas

    THESE PEOPLE COULD BE INDIANS .

  4. Marlon Long

    This was Willie Ray Jr. Can’t remember his last name???

  5. Linda Smith

    Try Mrs. Carolyn Howard from Ft. Mitchell

  6. Aleda Midgarden

    I remember visiting such folks during Public Health Orientation in rural Alabama.

    Was he born in Africa and brought to the USA, then he is Africa American. But if he was born in the USA then he’s just an American. Think about it.

      So are folks proud of their Irish heritage wrong to say their Irish american? Or what about Korean Americans? Give me a break. Folks can be proud of their heritage and proud to be American at the same time

    2. Michael Kendrick

      Again if you were born in the USA your an American, born in Ireland and move here you are Irish America. Really should be stated American Irish ☘️
