The Attic, 4th Floor Academy Square
Provo Library

Celebrate Black History Month with this collection of historic photographs.

The beginning of the 20th century was a time of great promise and hope for race relations in America. This optimistic era was fueled by what was known at the time as the "New Negro Movement", and no one better captured the essence of this time of advancement than African American photography John Johnson. 

Johnson primarily used his neighborhood in Lincoln, Nebraska as his canvas to craft powerful portraits of dignity and hope from 1910 to 1925. Equally as important as Johnson's ennobling images of African Americans are his images of blacks and whites together, an occurrence that was almost unheard of at the time. 

Black and White in Black and White is curated by Douglas Keister and presented with support from California State University, Chico.
