Some photos are trimmed or marked for trimming and reduction, as if for publication in a newspaper or periodical. Packed reasonably neatly, they fill about 2/3 of a standard banker's box. Includes photos of national conventions, local churches and meetings, their missions in the Bahamas, Liberia, Malawi and elsewhere, etc., etc. These may have once belonged to some branch or department of the NBC or one of its member churches. While it would take some challenging work to sort and try to identify all of the photos, this is a large and appealing batch of photos relating to this African American denomination.
