Chicago Tribune: Auction wars? George Lucas and Mellody Hobson could battle bidders for historic Ebony photo archives.

Chicago Tribune: Auction wars? George Lucas and Mellody Hobson could battle bidders for historic Ebony photo archives.. “The Ebony photo archives, a unique and expansive window into the African American experience, are set to go on the auction block in July, pending approval from a Chicago federal bankruptcy court.” Times like these I wish I had a big pile of money. I’d buy the archives and put them online, making them available with a SA-NC Creative Commons license. I’d charge a modest fee for commercial usage and use that money to create free lesson plans using the photographs for K-12 teachers. But the most I can do is tell you about it.
