This is one of my favorite pictures by Curtis, but it won’t be featured in my exhibit in January. Luckily, it is currently on display at the LAPL Central Branch Getty Gallery until Friday, January 29th, 2016, as part of a different exhibit called: Changing America: The Emancipation Proclamation, 1863 and the March on Washington, 1963. Half of the photos for this exhibit are from the Shades of LA Collection, and the other half is from the Curtis collection. It features a completely different set of photographs from the actual Curtis exhibit opening in January, showcasing life in the African American community, instead of a specific focus on black leaders.
