The Sun to Sun Singers
1938

1930s Vaudeville
This photographic print shows four male singers in overalls performing their vaudeville act onstage. It comes from the photographic collection of Addison N. Scurlock, a Washington, DC photographer who sought to document African American culture in order to enhance racial pride and identity. Before he died in 1964, Scurlock captured the portraits of many famous African American luminaries, such as Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois, as well as less well known figures like the Sun to Sun Singers.
