About this Book

A collection of never-before published photographs from the archives of the New York Times...

In 2016, editors at the New York Times found in the paper's photographic archives dozens of unfamiliar photographs of notable African-Americans and scenes from African-American life – images which the 'journal of record' had never published and the world had never seen.

This discovery inspired a highly acclaimed month-long online series, Unpublished Black History, and marked the start of an even deeper exploration of the Times' archive, a journey to find other forgotten pictures and more, to discover the story behind each image.

Now these extraordinary photographs and history have been collected in a remarkable new book.
Easton Press and the New York Times are proud to present – Unseen: Unpublished Black History, a leather-bound Collector's Edition.

Never-before-seen images and untold stories from the New York Times


Discovered in the Times' archive of millions of photographs and negatives, the hundreds of images in Unseen: Unpublished Black History both offer fresh insights into famous lives and events and bring to light long neglected people, stories, and achievements.

Rosa Parks at the Montgomery trial of Martin Luther King …. 21-year-old tennis prodigy Arthur Ashe scoring a stunning upset of the #2 seed …. Mississippi police facing marchers protesting the murder of Medgar Evers ….The charred interior of Malcom X's house, firebombed a week before his fatal shooting .… Black rodeo riders in Freehold, N.J. …. Rap pioneers and activists Run-DMC at a 1986 benefit to fight the crack epidemic....

The Times' editors take the reader into the worlds of these photographs and hundreds more, explaining the time, place, context, and behind-the-scenes drama of each image. But the story doesn't stop there. These pages go even further, exploring why the photograph was not used and how the mainstream media has viewed African-Americans and their stories.

A gorgeous volume of absorbing images, surprising stories, and provocative questions, UNSEEN: Unpublished Black History is a unique portrait of the African-American story and how it is told.
