National Geographic acknowledges past racist coverage - The Globe and Mail
JESSE J. HOLLAND
WASHINGTON
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

National Geographic first published its magazine in 1888. An investigation conducted last fall by University of Virginia photography historian John Edwin Mason showed that until the 1970s, it virtually ignored people of colour in the United States who were not domestics or labourers, and it reinforced repeatedly the idea that people of colour from foreign lands were “exotics, famously and frequently unclothed, happy hunters, noble savages_every type of cliché.”
