Getty Images Unleashes 30K Rare Images For Free To Honor Black History & Culture


Recommended Posts

Being one of the largest names in royalty-free photography, Getty Images is a formidable resource for amplifying minority voices, though its potential remains largely untapped. Things are about to change from here—the platform has rolled out the Black History & Culture Collection, which brings free, non-commercial access to rarely-seen images of the African/Black Diaspora in the US and UK. These have pretty much stayed hidden in Getty’s repository and are now given more visibility.

The collection brings some 30,000 images from as far back as the 1800s to the present-day Black Lives Matter movement. The hope is to empower educators, storytellers, academics, and researchers to fill the gaps of the past and keep their audiences informed about rich Black history and culture, as well as acknowledge the work of people of color who contributed to today’s innovations.
