“Ray Charles” Photo Display Signed By Teenie Harris
Charles “Teenie” Harris was a trailblazer in professional photography. The African American artist’s atelier was in Pittsburgh where he operated an independent studio, but he plied most of his career in the service of the Pittsburgh Courier, the leading black Steel City newspaper of the time. It was a chronicle of a vibrant urban community during the Jim Crow and Civil Rights eras. In his images, he captured the city’s urban flavor in everyday experiences as well as people who shaped the 20th century – stars like Lena Horne, Jackie Robinson, John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. Currently, the Carnegie Museum of Art is entrusted with many of his negatives archives. With permission from his estate many of these iconic images are now available and are presented for enjoyment.
Offered here is a Photo taken in Pittsburgh located in a bar named Hurricane Bar & Grill in the Hill District around the 1960’s era. This classic photo includes Ray Charles and “The Raelettes.”
