Tuskegee, Alabama

Welcome to Tuskegee, Alabama Week here at OPOD. We will be looking at pictures from this Old South town over the last 100 years. We start with this picture from around 1900's. It shows a group of men preparing to serve food at an outdoor event. As the week goes on, we will be looking at different aspects of life in this area.


  1. Sounds like fun.
    I wonder what the event was.

  2. Any idea of the context of this photograph? It appears to be some sort of a banquet.

  3. Take a close look at the guy front center. It would appear that Eddie Murphy has achieved time travel.


  4. Interesting photo. For a good read on this subject I recommend "Up From Slavery," the autobiography of Booker T. Washington, founder of the Tuskegee Institute. I have my high school kids read it for American Lit.
