Black Men Clubbing is a view into the celebrated male portraits by the late Chicago photographer Michael Abramson from black nightclubs of mid-70s South Side Chicago. These fantastic, fun, and diverse photos taken by this young white man in a fashionable black environment are celebrated and analyzed in reference and response to today's black culture. Abramson attended these clubs regularly from late 1974 to 1977, many of which were run by impresario Johnny Pepper and featured a mixture of blues, jazz, funk and early disco music. The men and women who attended these clubs were dressed to the nines, and this photo book features their exuberant clothing and attitude.
