“Through a Lens Darkly”: Screening and Talkback

Monday, January 26, 2015 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM 
Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture

515 Malcolm X Blvd
Harlem

Inspired by Deborah Willis’s book, Reflections in Black, filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris casts a broad net with Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People and begins with his family album. The film is a cornucopia of Americana that reveals deeply disturbing truths about the history of race relations while expressing joyous, life-affirming sentiments about the ability of artists and amateurs alike to assert their identity through the photographic lens. A conversation moderated by Shola Lynch with Dr. Deborah Willis and and Thomas Allen Harris will follow the screening.
