      Margaret Sartor and Alex Harris, Where We Find Ourselves: The Photographs of Hugh Magnum, 1897-1922

      In the later part of the 19th century, Hugh Mangum was an itinerant portraitist working in North Carolina and Virginia during the rise of Jim Crow. His clientele was both racially and economically diverse. His forgotten glass plate negatives were discovered in the 1970s in a barn slated for demolition. As editors Margaret Sartor and Alex Harris show in their book Where We Find Ourselves, Mangum’s photographs are an unparalleled document of life in the turbulent history of the American South at the turn of the 20th century.

      Margaret Sartor is a writer, photographer, and instructor at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. Alex Harris is a writer, photographer, and a founder of the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, where he has taught for many years.

      Tickets for all lectures are $10 for not-yet members, $5 for members, and free to AHC Insiders unless otherwise noted.
