Print them out, color them in, and create your own to share with us online using the hashtag #SCatHome. You can also download a full printable PDF at the end of the article.

Where We Find Ourselves

Margaret Sartor

In the late 1890s, self-taught photographer Hugh Mangum (1877–1922) began riding the rails as an itinerant portraitist, traveling primarily in North Carolina and Virginia. Mangum worked during the rise of the segregationist laws of the Jim Crow era. Despite this, his portraits reveal a clientele that was both racially and economically diverse, and show lives marked by notable affluence and hard work, all imbued with a strong sense of individuality and self-creation.
