EXHIBITION: Through His Eyes

Through His Eyes: Youth Activism in The Civil Rights Era in Philadelphia is an online exhibition that pulls from the Jack T. Franklin photographic collection at AAMP to explore Philadelphia’s often overlooked civil rights activists – Black youth. As today’s youth struggle through mass school closures, police brutality, and racial discrimination, these images taken by Franklin are a poignant reminder that anyone at any age can make a change. Guest curated by AAMP’s summer 2019 graduate intern, Rachel Nelson.
