Wendel White: History in Black and White

For over four decades, photographer Wendel White has investigated the reverberations of the past upon the present. White has created a catalog of this country’s troubled racial history by depicting objects, people, and places of significance to the African American experience. Wendel White: History In Black and White is made up of bodies of work, beginning with his early street photography from the late 1970s, and includes the series Manifest (2009–Present), Schools for The Colored (2002–2010), Red Summer (2012–2019), and Small Towns, Black Lives (1989-2002).
