    THROUGH DARKNESS TO LIGHT: Photographs Along the Underground Railroad

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

    Reception: July 6, 5:00 – 8:00pm

     

    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.

    THROUGH DARKNESS TO LIGHT: Photographs Along the Underground Railroad

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

    Reception: July 6, 5:00 – 8:00pm

     

    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.

    THROUGH DARKNESS TO LIGHT: Photographs Along the Underground Railroad

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

    Reception: July 6, 5:00 – 8:00pm

     

    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.
