"The Black List Project"


"The Black List Project" is a photographic exhibition and documentary featuring portraits of prominent African Americans of various professions, disciplines and backgrounds. Historically, "blacklist" denotes a group of people marginalized and denied work or social approval. In an effort to redefine the word, 25 featured African Americans provide insight on the struggles, triumphs and joys of black life in the United States. The exhibition will be on display through April 25.
