Teenie Harris Exhibit

Teenie Harris, Photographer: An American Story

January 24 - May 24, 2013

Virginia Lacy Jones Exhibition Hall, Upper Level

Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library

 

 

Teenie Harris, Photographer: An American Story is a groundbreaking retrospective of the works of African American photographer Charles “Teenie” Harris (1908–1998).  On loan from the Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Museum of Art the exhibit features selections of Harris’s most artistic and historically significant images. The exhibit is making its first appearance in the Southeast at the Atlanta University Center (AUC) Robert W. Woodruff Library in sponsorship with PNC Bank. Harris’s photographs—made in his studio and for the Pittsburgh Courier, a  leading national black newspaper of the time—chronicle a vibrant black urban community during the Jim Crow and civil rights eras. He captured the poetry of everyday common experience, as well as the extraordinary people who shaped the 20th century.

 

Complementing the exhibit is Hill District Beat: A Tribute to Teenie Harris, a video gallery of Harris’s work set to an original soundtrack. Also on display is the Trezzvant Anderson: Roving Reporter and the Jim Crow South, an archival exhibit with materials highlighting Anderson’s career as a reporter for the Pittsburgh Courier. In conjunction with the Teenie Harris exhibit, the AUC Woodruff Library is also hosting a series of programs that are free and open to the public.
