The Royal Order of Ethiopian Hebrews of New York, an Afro-American Jewish group in Harlem, was originally photographed by Alland as a 1941 commission from Life magazine.

An extraordinary group of photographs, remarkable for their rich tonality and the evident sympathy of the photographer for his subjects.
