Visualizing Emancipation

Share

October 11, 2012 through March 16, 2013

Program Locations:

Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Exhibition Hall

To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the Schomburg presents 171 pre– and post– Civil War era photographs of enslaved and free black women, men, and children. The images record the presence of black soldiers and black workers in the American South and help the 21st century viewer reimagine a landscape of black people's desire to be active in their own emancipation.
