For most of the twentieth century, two generations of Scurlocks documented Washington, D.C.'s African American community and city life. Portraits of a City is a web resource from the Archives Center, National Museum of American History, that preserves and provides access to the photographic archives of the Scurlock Studio. The thousands of images in the Scurlock archives are an invaluable resource for understanding the history of Washington and of the nation.
