Unseen: Unpublished Black History from the New York Times Photo Archives

by Dana Canedy & Darcy Eveleigh & Damian Cave & Rachel L. Swarns


Hundreds of stunning images from black history have long been buried in The New York Times archives. None of them were published by The Times — until now. Unseen uncovers these never-before published photographs and tells the stories behind them.

Were the photos — or the people in them — not deemed newsworthy enough? Did the images not arrive in time for publication? Were they pushed aside by words at an institution long known as the Gray Lady? Eveleigh, Canedy, Cave, and Swarns explore all these questions and more in this one-of-a-kind book.

Unseen dives deep into The Times photo archives — known as the Morgue — to showcase this extraordinary collection of photographs and the stories behind them.
