Black Cat Auditions, Life Magazine, 1961
I have no idea what show these black cat auditions were for, but Life Magazine thought it was interesting enough to cover. This is a great look at 1961 Hollywood fashions that includes farmers and socialites, as well as some cute kitties. This link is from the same website as the ex-slave pictures so it shows it's worth it to explore!

Ex Slaves as seen in the 1930s.
I just discovered this website today and it is pretty darn amazing. This link goes to a page containing photographs of ex slaves, but the site is definitely worth exploring in greater detail! The lady pictured here is Lizzie Hill. She was 94 and lived in Alabama when this picture was taken.
