Philadelphia Tribune Begins Digitally Archiving and Selling Photos Documenting Black History
"I am thrilled that our company, which was founded with the mission of preserving and making publicly accessible the unpublished visual record of our experience as a nation, most of which has been buried away for decades or even over a century in photo libraries belonging to newspapers, is working with the Philadelphia Tribune," said Bob Pokress, cofounder and president of Image Fortress. "Their photo library provides a unique and historically vital perspective on the evolution of the history of our nation as well as a unique prism into the events and people in and around the Philadelphia metro region who have shaped and been shaped by that history."
