Documentary: Civil Rights in Black and White: Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People
Inspired by Deborah Willis's book, Reflections in Black, Through a Lens Darkly a broad net that begins with filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris's family album. It considers the difference between black photographers who use the camera to define themselves, their people, and their culture and some white photographers who, historically, have demeaned African Americans through racist imagery. The film embraces both historical material (African Americans who were slaves, who fought in the Civil War, were victims of lynchings, or were pivotal in the Civil Rights Movement) and contemporary images made by such luminaries as Roy DeCarava, Gordon Parks, and Carrie Mae Weems. Director Thomas Allen Harris introduces the film and leads a post-screening discussion.

This series is made possible through Brooklyn Public Library's Fund for the Humanities, established through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Additional funding was provided by the Hearst Foundation, Inc.; the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation; the Starr Foundation; the Leon and Muriel Gilbert Charitable Trust; the Henry and Lucy Moses Fund, Inc.; and a gift in memory of Samuel and Pauline Wine.
