Unidentified woman, 1970s. This is not Leslie Uggams, even though this woman has been mistakenly identified as her lately online. I was curious to find out who she was, so I did a little digging. If this website is correct, this woman is apparently one of hundreds who tried out for jobs as in strip clubs in Southern California in the late 1960s and early 1970s. For the prurient minded, the women on the site are in various states of.. full dress.

James Van Der Zee’s photographic chronicle of the Harlem Renaissance and African-American life in Harlem during the 1920s/30s (source)

In these photographs, you will not see the common images of black Americans — downtrodden rural or urban citizens. Instead, you will see a people of great pride and fascinating beauty.
