Main Library

African American Center Exhibit Space - 3rd Floor

100 Larkin St.

A  photographic journey across Africa through the lenses of photographers throughout the continent, who are looking to reframe Africa in a new light. The exhibition looks to clear up the misperceptions some hold of Africa as intellectually, technologically and economically backward; trying to get rid of the notion that Africa is still a continent in the throes of the dark ages and not a place filled with vibrant people, brilliant minds and vistas, struggles and triumphs and a diversity of life seen in very few other places.
