  • THROUGH DARKNESS TO LIGHT: Photographs Along the Underground Railroad

    June 16, 2018 - October 21, 2018  
    Portsmouth Art & Cultural Center

    Books have been written on the subject, but there is very little visual documentation about the Underground Railroad. Photographer Jeanine Michna-Bales took on this challenge and spent more than a decade researching “fugitive” slaves and their path to freedom.  As America becomes more diverse today, Michna-Bales believes that an understanding of the experience – and those who lived through it is more relevant than ever.  Through Darkness to Light: Photographs Along the Underground Railroad presents a photographic journey that shares what the experience would have been like for the millions of slaves who sought their path to freedom.  This exhibition is toured by Exhibits USA.
