Billie Holiday

Inez Dickerson

I recently had the good fortune of encountering these stunning portraits by Carl Van Vechten, on the blog, Nothing is New. I was absolutely captivated when I first saw them, and I wanted to share them for Black History Month. Be sure to visit Nothing is New for regular servings of unique, historic images. Thanks Kelly!
