What’s YOUR Philadelphia story?

As part of a new television series being filmed for public television, “Family Pictures USA” will be at the African American Museum in Philadelphia (AAMP) for a casting session for a future episode, conducting filmed interviews with average Philadelphians to get their take on the City of Brotherly Love as seen through the family photo album.

Bring a selection of your favorite photographs – digital or actual photo – to our Community Photo-Sharing Session at AAMP, on Saturday, September 9th, from11am to 4pm, and spend 10-15 minutes with our Family Pictures USA Production Team telling us about YOUR Philadelphia story.

Reservations are required and interview spots are limited. To reserve your spot, please send an email to: 1World1Family.me@gmail.com and mention: “My Philadelphia Story” in the subject line.                                            You can also call us at: (212) 281 – 6002 and ask for: “Philly Desk.”

The Mighty Joe Von Battle – Requiem for a Record Shop Man

My father, the late Joe Von Battle, was an important mid-century recorder and producer of blues and gospel music in Detroit, from 1945 until 1967. He has been called the “Chess of Detroit”, referring to the iconic Chicago Record company, and is regarded by many as a cornerstone in the building of the “Detroit Sound.”

Before You Came, We Were Here: An Ojibway Family & The Making of Detroit

Chantel Henry (Ginew Kwe or "Golden Eagle Woman") became aware of her and her family's deep connection to the city of Detroit about four years ago. We are so honored that she decided to share with us the story of how her grandparents, Arnold and Freda Henry, came to Detroit and her family's rich history in the city.

Found an interesting connection in my family album to my yearbook photos. I was so fascinated by how much these photos resembled each other, thought to share here.

My Jr High photo on the left matches so closely to my paternal grandmother's photo, taken at about the same age.
My H.S. yearbook photo with my maternal great aunt's portrait on the right, also taken about the same age. I never saw the connection with her before, and only now realize how much I resemble(d) her - something that completely surprised me.
Very similar expressions, the resemblance is almost uncanny with both. It's interesting how different phases of "me" can all connect back to family members throughout - even more intriguing when both families come from different parts of the world. My grandmother's photo was taken in Israel, a little after migrating from Tehran, Iran. My great aunt's portrait was probably taken somewhere in Dushanbe, Tajikistan before the family also migrated to Israel. My school photos were both taken in Queens, New York.
