Teenie Harris, Photographer: An American Story

Implementation of a multimedia traveling exhibition examining the work of African American photographer Teenie Harris of Pittsburgh.

"Teenie Harris, Photographer: An American Story" is the first major retrospective exhibition and Web site celebrating the work and legacy of African American artist Charles "Teenie" Harris (1908-1998). From 1936 to 1975, Harris was staff photographer for the Pittsburgh Courier, the preeminent Black news weekly. This was a period of momentous change for Black Americans, and Harris's pictures offer a richly, detailed history of the time. Carnegie Museum of Art opens An American Story in Pittsburgh, October 29, 2011-April 15, 2012. The national tour of the exhibition begins May 1, 2012: confirmed traveling venues to date are Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (August-October 2012) and the Robert W. Woodruff Library at Atlanta University Center (January-March/April 2013).
