Vera Ruth Jackson was a "pioneer woman photographer in the black press". She photographed African-American social life and celebrity culture in 1930s and 1940s Los Angeles. [Wikipedia]
Charlotta Bass was the publisher of the California Eagle newspaper from 1912 to 1951, and a civil rights activist. The California Eagle, covering Los Angeles' African-American community, was one of the oldest and longest running African American newspapers.
Charlotta Bass stands on the steps of a train car ready to board, probably during her 1952 Progressive Party campaign for Vice-President with Vincent Hallinan.
