The Museum of the African Diaspora docents invite you to gain insight and understanding by viewing photographs of Black families in the United States from the mid 19th century to early 20th century. MoAD staff will present a variety of intriguing family photos found in several public domain archives and discuss aesthetics, cultural context, and the capacity of photography in forming social representation. Look forward to discovering the backstory you never knew was there.
This event will take place on Zoom. Enrollments close on Monday, February 22 at 11:59 pm, so don’t miss your chance! After you enroll, we’ll follow up by sending a link to access the program 2 hours before it begins.
