About this Event
At the height of the civil rights movement, New York Times photographer Alix Jeffry captured the premieres of two revolutionary plays by Adrienne Kennedy and Amiri Baraka.
Drawing on Jeffry’s archive of over 60,000 images, In Black and White explores the intersection of the arts and activism at a pivotal moment in Black theater history. The exhibition features original photographs from Dutchman and Funnyhouse of a Negro that Jeffry took during rehearsals and live performances.
In addition to production photos, Jeffry's portraits of pioneering Black artists of the 1960s and ‘70s will be on view in Houghton's ground floor gallery.
In Black and White is on view March 21 – July 22, 2022. The exhibition is open to all visitors with proof of vaccination and booster; face coverings are recommended.
