Gallery Talk: Portrait Of My Father

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

Rosalind Withers, the daughter of the civil rights photographer Ernest Withers, shares stories of growing up with the photographer and challenges to his legacy. She will speak on images represented in the current exhibit "Pictures Tell the Story" showing through May 10. "Pictures Tell the Story" is a selection of photos of Memphis’ African American community spanning the decades of the 1940-1970s. Withers is most often referred to as a civil rights photographer, but he captured much more than seminal events of the movement. This small collection of images come from an archive of thousands. In 2008, Rosalind Withers was named Trustee of the Ernest C. Withers Trust. In 2009 Rosalind founded and was named Board Chairman of Withers Collection Museum and Gallery. She manages and procures one of the largest photo collections amassed by a single individual. She is responsible for daily operations of the Withers photographic Art Museum and Gallery.
