Join us at the Nebraska History Museum for a free event celebrating the opening of Black and White in Black and White: Images of Dignity, Hope, and Diversity in America, our new exhibit highlighting the community photography of John Johnson. A janitor and drayman, Johnson was also a talented and prolific photographer, documenting Lincoln's African-American community from 1910 to 1925.
The event will include:
- A performance by Omaha saxophonist Ed "Smoove Grooves" Archibald.
- Performance of "Power of the Spoken Word" by Felicia Webster, Humanities Nebraska Speaker.
- Food by GrannyWeavs Soul Food & Catering
Attendees will also get a chance to be some of the first to see the new exhibit, which will only be on display for a limited time. We hope to see you there!
Parking at the Museum is limited, but there is parking nearby, including three parking garages within a four block radius.
Black and White in Black and White: Images of Dignity, Hope, and Diversity in America is curated by Douglas Keister and presented with support from California State University, Chico.
