YZ just sent these images of faces they put up in Paris. Interestingly, one is of William Casby, who was one of the last living African-Americans that had been born into slavery. He was photographed in 1963 by Richard Avedon (see photo HERE), and has also been a popular subject for Chris Stain.

This is my Great, Great, Grand-father. I came across this web site because I am doing a presentation on my family history for Black History Month on Feb. 21, 2010. Please give more insight. Thank you
