For many, Black history is reduced to a handful of moments and events. Yet there are so many more, possibly unfamiliar by name, that have had tremendous impact. Our featured exhibition is a photographic representation that captures a few moments in life, a short timeline with faces and places that deserve remembering.

The exhibition will be presented in two phases. The first phase has images taken
by James Conway Farley and George O. Brown and his family, prominent African American photographers of the early 19th century. Depictions of worship life and the educational experience are also included. Professionals and entrepreneurs, organizations, and the military round out the second installation which consists of more than 150 photographs. Special appreciation goes to our researcher and curator, Elvatrice Belsches, and we are grateful to the families and institutions that shared their photographs.
