February is Black History Month, but it is also the shortest month of the year. That being the case I thought I had better post about this as soon as possible before time runs out. I have listed below a very short list of some influential African-American photographers for your exploration. If I was unable to find a current exhibition to suggest, I simply added a link to information about the photographer.
I decided to cast a wider net. Why limit the list to American history? I have a few global options for you to explore as well.
Staying Power : Photographs of Black British Experience 1950s - 1990s
Human Rights Human Wrongs
Alice Seeley Harris Brutal Exposure: The Congo
Black Chronicles II - this traveling exhibition just finished up in Uruguay, but there is no indication if it will be traveling to a new location next. Hopefully, it will.
