SUN Board member Richard Breland–the cute little kid on the right in the picture above–has spent a good deal of time behind the lens of a camera during his 79 years, most spent here in Syracuse. He started with an old Brownie camera and he now totes around a digital camera. Through the years and hundreds of photos, Rich has documented an amazing stretch of history of the city of Syracuse, especially the everyday lives of African-Americans. A selection of his photographs are on display at Syracuse University, a part of the school’s Black History Month celebration. For years, legal segregation meant African-Americans could only live in the 15th ward of the city. Rich has captured the amazing sense of community that existed amongst the area’s residents.
