About Black in America: This exhibition presents two views of African American daily life during the civil rights era through the photographs of Louis Draper, a black fine art photographer, and Leonard Freed, a white photojournalist. This also marks the premiere of a number of recent acquisitions, including the purchase of five works by each artist and the generous gift of seventeen Freed photographs from New York collectors Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg. The tour will be guided by exhibit curator Barbara Tannenbaum.

The Cleveland Museum of Art is pleased to present this exhibition as part of the year-long, community-wide commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Carl Stokes’s election as mayor of Cleveland. Mayor Stokes and his brother, Congressman Louis Stokes, played key roles in the advancement of the city and the nation during the civil rights movement and beyond.
