Black History Month 2020: 106 Images of Everyday African American Life

In celebration of Black History Month 2020, we have put together a gallery of 106 images of everyday black history meant to celebrate, inspire, and encourage exploration of the diversity of the African American experience. These images may be viewed leisurely, or for a deeper dive, use the questions provided under the "How to Analyze an Image" square. We also suggest you watch "The Danger of a Single Story" TEDtalk by Chimamanda Ngozi and think about its overall message. Once you have finished viewing the images, make sure to consider the final reflection questions located in a square at the end of the Learning Lab.

Billie Holiday at Sugar Hill: Photographs by Jerry Dantzic

This collection, created to accompany the SITES exhibition Billie Holiday at Sugar Hill: Photographs by Jerry Dantzic, contains complementary resources to support the exhibition's themes. The collection includes music, photography, objects, and other sources to facilitate an examination of who Billie Holiday was, her legacy,  the use of available light within photography, the dynamic context of jazz in the 1950s, and how artists like Billie Holiday used their art to influence social change. 

About the exhibition:  In April 1957, photographer Jerry Dantzic had an assignment from Decca Records to photograph Billie Holiday during a weeklong run of performances at the Newark, New Jersey, nightclub, Sugar Hill. What unfolded was an unexpected and intimate journey into her private and public worlds. His photos comprise the largest collection of images from any single Billie Holiday club engagement. "Billie Holiday at Sugar Hill: Photographs by Jerry Dantzic” presents 56 remarkable images of the jazz icon that challenge the tragic narrative that frequently defines her. The exhibition is on view at Irving Arts Center in the Main Gallery from September 14 through November 17, 2019.
