The Other Witnesses: Photography, African American History, And The Aesthetics Of Knowing

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

Pellom McDaniels, Curator of African American Collections and Assistant Professor of African American Studies at Emory University, examines the use of photography as a documentary practice and medium for exposing the complexities of African American life in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Bringing attention to Gordon Parks's understanding of photography as a "weapon against all things [he] disliked about America – poverty, racism, discrimination," McDaniels will discuss photographs from the Robert Langmuir African American Photograph Collection held in the Emory University Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library. A record of African American history as it has unfolded, these photographs serve as mirrors with memory that reflect, interpret, and elevate black life.
