For those of you who don't know, DeOldify is the company that allows us to colorize the images within the #NannyJackAndCoArchives and they've done an amazing job.
"We also asked Dana if this project has given her a greater appreciation for the past. "I have always been very interested in history, and seeing historical photos in color has increased my interest," she told Bored Panda. "I love learning more about what the model gets right (and wrong) so that we can keep improving. It's been inspiring to collaborate with others who are also passionate about sharing their history, and we love that we are able to help them tell their stories. We love the African-American heritage archive Nanny Jack & Company and have supported them in creating enhanced colorizations for some of their speaking events. They do a phenomenal job of taking historical artifacts with an African American focus and tying them back to the places and spaces that made them special then and now."
