The exhibition presents images by 12 photographers, including Harry Adams, Roland Charles, Guy Crowder, Jack Davis, Bob Douglas, Maxie Floyd, Alex Green, Calvin Hicks, James Jeffrey, Dan Martin, Willie Middlebrook and Charles Williams. Most of the photographers worked for news services and the black press—such as the California Eagle, Los Angeles Sentinel, Jet and Ebony—chronicling politicians, important events and celebrities in a photojournalistic style. Works by other featured photographers reflect the broader aesthetic dimensions of the medium. The photographs, many of which have never before been exhibited, will be supplemented by 250 images projected on to video screens.
