Activist photographers of the civil rights movement, whose work is featured in the Maltz Museum’s special exhibition This Light of Ours, used cameras to shape a nation’s understanding of a pivotal time in American history. Similarly, when photographs of the Holocaust were revealed, the world bore witness to horrors of humanity that were impossible to understand by description alone. Images powerfully express the reality of a moment amid cultural periods and social movements and provide a lens to truth that cannot be denied. How are Cleveland-based photographers using their camera lenses now? Join the celebrated artists and activists Amanda King of Shooting without Bullets and Daniel Levin of Violins for Hope, with Moderator Regennia Williams, Distinguished Scholar of African American History and Culture at the Western Reserve Historical Society, for a candid conversation about what motivates their art, why photography is an effective tool for social change, and how they hope their images will inspire positive change in Cleveland and beyond.
