This traveling exhibition from Exhibit Envoy features striking photographs attributed to African American photographer John Johnson. Using his neighborhood in Lincoln, Nebraska as his canvas, Johnson crafted these images of his neighbors, friends, and family between 1910 and 1925.

The exhibit will also feature stories from Dearfield, Colorado. While Johnson was busy capturing his photographs, the town of Dearfield was thriving. Founder O.T. Jackson established the town in 1910 in hopes that it would become a place where African Americans could become financially independent through agriculture.

“Black and White in Black and White: Images of Dignity, Hope, and Diversity in America” is curated by Douglas Keister, presented with support from California State University, Chico, and traveled by Exhibit Envoy.

Exhibit open February 17 through May 28, 2022.
