New York, NY (Top40 Charts) "A stunning collection of snapshots, "Black Hollywood: The Lost Photos" reveals itself as far more than a book. It is a must-see reflection of American History!" said Ryane Nicole Granados, Author and Associate Professor of English, Golden West College.

Photojournalist to the stars since 1963, Delroi Whitaker Sr. with co-authors Darrell Whitaker and television executive Aswaad English, are releasing the inspiring new book of unpublished photos of African-American Hollywood legends, their achievements and their personal moments spent in Los Angeles, California from 1967 to 1990.

"In a stunning collection of snapshots, "Black Hollywood: The Lost Photos" reveals itself as far more than a book. It is a must-see reflection of American History!" said Ryane Nicole Granados, Author and Associate Professor of English, Golden West College.

A work of art, the coffee table book series is a photo-biography of unpublished moments captured during the rise to fame of Michael Jackson, The Jackson 5, Muhammad Ali, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Rick James, Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross, Phyllis Hyman and many other ebony icons who rose to fame in the sixties through the nineties. These visual stories are told through the lens of Delroi Whitaker Sr. For more information or to purchase this memorable Amazon book, visit Black Hollywood: The Lost Photos

Along side these remarkable photos, the book is filled with inspirational quotes, motivational writing and a special dedication to President Barack Obama: "We salute President Obama's historic two-term presidency along with his positive, transformational achievements that have uplifted all races and communities. President Obama has created endless amounts of positive imagery for generations to come."

"Learning more about my father's life, it's my honor to help present a lifetime of photography, hard work and passion," said choreographer and music producer Darrell Whitaker. "I hope this project finds us peace and acceptance of ourselves and others."

"I took my first pictures," said Delroi, "of Muhammad Ali next to my candy truck at the Olympic Auditorium in 1978. Richard Pryor, Marvin Gaye and Sammy Davis Jr., all went rounds with Ali. This was one of my greatest moments with such icons."

Aswaad English, producer and creator of the all new daytime courtroom series "Judge Joe Brown's True Verdict", said he was inspired to produce and co-author this project after realizing there was a gap in collectively honoring these African-Americans who have made such extraordinary contributions to entertainment, music and sports. "My goal is to remind the world just how many beautiful elements the Black culture has contributed to the American way of life today," said English.

The "Black Hollywood:The Lost Photos" book series is produced by the official "Black Hollywood Brand," which was founded in 2016 by the authors along with Curtis Jones and Flipp Montgomery. The founders mission is to uplift the voice of the African-American people and applaud their daily contributions to the successful and positive growth of the American culture and society.
