Join us for a Zoom discussion on the significance of Black photographers, the power of the camera's gaze, and photography's role in movements for human rights and social justice. The panel will feature Jamaica Gilmer, photographer and founder of "The Beautiful Project," Dare Kumolu-Johnson, documentary photographer and visual storyteller, and Jay Simple, visual artist and founder of Photographer's Green Book. The discussion will be moderated by independent curator and art historian Anita Bateman, Ph.D. This event is co-sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics and The Focus Program in collaboration with Duke's first-year FOCUS course, "Human Rights on Camera," taught by Professor Rebecca Stein.
