Join us for a conversation on vernacular image-making among Black Europeans and African Americans in the first half of the twentieth century. Tina Campt’s new book, Image Matters, explores how Black Germans and Black Britons used vernacular photography to create forms of identity and belonging that challenged racist stereotypes. The event features scholars, photographers, archivists, and curators of Black visual culture discussing how black communities articulate their place in their society through the photographic image.

Sponsored by the International Center of Photography, Barnard College Africana Studies Program, and the Institute for Research on Women and Gender at Columbia University.
