Reconstructing the Narrative: Illuminating Savannah’s Civil Rights History

When: Jan. 25-July 31 2017

Using archival and historical photographs from the Jim Crow era and the Civil Rights Movement in Savannah preserved in the W. W. Law Collection, Trice Megginson rephotographed the original, depicted locations. The historical images are then physically pinned onto the contemporary views. This results in constructed images consisting of layered photographs sharing a physical space that simultaneously show both an untold history of the city and the views one sees today.
