Join us for an art talk and Q&A with Ghosts of Segregation photographer Rich Frishman.

Frishman’s first camera was a gift for his 5th birthday, and since then he’s never put it down.

“I am, by nature, a storyteller,” Frishman said. “Photography is my means of expressing those stories. My roots are in photojournalism, and those ethics still inform my work. Reality, in all its beauty and ugliness, is what I’m seeking to convey.”

Ghosts of Segregation photographically explores the vestiges of America’s racism as seen in the vernacular landscape: schools for “colored” children, theatre entrances and restrooms for “colored people,” lynching sites, juke joints, jails, hotels, and bus stations. What is past is prologue. Segregation is as much current events as it is history.  These ghosts haunt us because they are so very painfully alive.

We’re offering three sessions to limit capacity to 25 people per group. A recorded version of this art talk will be made available virtually starting September 30.
