The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is hosting a screening of Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People this Friday.
Inspired by the book Reflections in Black by Deborah Willis, this history of African American photography focuses on the camera as a tool for social change from the invention of photography to the present. Director Thomas Allen Harris, Co-Writer/Co-Producer Don Perry, and Assistant Professor in VCU Photography and Film Department Paul Thulin will be present to introduce the film and for a post-film discussion and Q&A.
The 90-minute film begins Friday, February 19th at 6:30 PM in the museum’s Leslie Cheek Theater. Tickets are $8 for the general public and $5 for VMFA members.
