Detroit in 1942 was much different for many people but especially for African Americans. A photo in a series that depicted the life and conditions of those families during that period.
Take a look at the photograph entitled “Mirror, Mirror: 1942“:
February 1942. “Detroit, Michigan. Negro girl putting up her hair.” One in a series by Arthur Siegel documenting the life of a “typical Negro worker’s family” and the “conditions under which families originally lived before moving to the Sojourner Truth housing project.” Office of War Information.
