Thank you for supporting “Through A Lens Darkly” documentary & multimedia community engagement initiative. With the help of our friends and colleagues across the nation, we successfully completed our online fundraising campaign on USA Projects. Please join us for the remainder of our journey as we complete our documentary and share the story of African American Photographers who used the camera as a tool for social change.
Which Photographs have Meaning for You?
“Through A Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People” is the first documentary to explore how African Americans have used photography as a tool for social change from the invention of the medium in the 1840s to the present.
Your tax-deductible donation will go towards the completion of the documentary including the final editing, sound mix, and archival licensing for the “Through A Lens Darkly” project.
Make your contribution today to the “Through A Lens Darkly” project that illuminates the hidden, little-known and under-appreciated story of African Americans transforming themselves and the nation through the power of the camera lens and broadens our understanding of who we are as Americans.
We Can Work Together
To Share the Images that Reflect Who We Really Are
Photographs Have Power!
Photographers, Scholars, Artists, Cultural Critics, Arts Advocates have joined me and my team to unearth and share the diverse stories of African American Life, Culture, and History as told through the Photograph. “Through A Lens Darkly” (TALD) is a collective journey that begins with invoking the memories found in the images contained in our extended Black family’s hidden photographic archive, while trying to reconcile the shame of a history that our forebears would rather forget.
JOIN US as we complete the final phase of Post Production for the “Through A Lens Darkly” (TALD) Documentary and Transmedia project. We appreciate your support for the completion of “Through A Lens Darkly” with a tax deductible donation through the USA projects website and spread the word about our campaign.
