Stephanie St Clair and Sufi Abdul Hamid

Picture after the jump

Harlem numbers Queen Stephanie St Clair, left, with her then husband and religious leader Sufi Abdul Hamid, right. Although the photo was published on January 23, 1938, St Clair and Hamid had officially dissolved their 99-year wedding contract late the year before. Most likely, this was the photo that the Afro-American used to accompany the news that St Clair had shot Hamid on January 19,1938.
