Through the African American Lens
Tell A Friend
From daguerreotype portraits taken before the Civil War to twenty-first century digital prints, the Double Exposure series is a striking visual record of key historical events, cultural touchstones, and private and communal moments that helps to illuminate African American life. In addition to featuring fifty photographs from a broad range of African American experiences, each thematic volume includes introductions by some of the leading historians, activists, photographers, and writers of our times. Through the African American Lens is an introduction to the photography collection, revealing the ways in which African Americans have used activism, community, and culture to fight for social justice and create a better life.
Double Exposure is a major new series based on the remarkable photography collection supporting the Earl W. and Amanda Stafford Center for African American Media Arts at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC).

"I anticipated using this book as a coffee table type book for conversation and display. I have similar other photography books but all of them have much larger pictures. I misunderstood the small size of the book. I had to return it."
