(Re)telling Stories in Photography About The Black Civil War Soldier
Saturday, April 9, 2022
2:00 PM–3:00 PM
Deborah Willis, author of The Black Civil War Soldier, explores photography’s role in (re)telling and shaping African American narratives of the Civil War, the first conflict to be extensively documented through photographs. These luminous photographs helped construct a national vision of blackness, war, and bondage. Willis hosts this talk in conjunction with the Clark’s exhibition As They Saw It: Artists Witnessing War, on view through May 30.
Presented via Zoom and Facebook Live. Advance registration for the Zoom transmission is required.
