Black and White in Black and White: Images of Dignity, Hope, and Diversity in America
At the turn of the 20th-century, many African Americans across the country embraced the “New Negro Movement,” which set the stage for the Harlem Renaissance. No one better captured the essence of this time of advancement than African American photographer John Johnson. This exhibition includes thirty-one large-scale black and white photographs captured by Johnson from 1910 to 1925. Black and White in Black and White: Images of Dignity, Hope, and Diversity in America is curated by Douglas Keister, presented with support from California State University, Chico, and traveled by Exhibit Envoy.
