Throwback Thursday: Orchestra

Happy #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

This week, we have an 8″x10″ black and white acetate negative featuring an orchestra made up of all male African American musicians. This image was taken on December 8, 1937 at the Orpheum Theatre.

This image is provided and owned by the Durham Museum. See all the material provided by the Durham Museum on the Nebraska Memories archive.
