A newly-formed coalition of 80 black photographers, See In Black, has been gathered to explore and show their personal viewpoints of America, along with a charitable print sale that will benefit “five key pillars of Black advancement.”
See In Black co-founders Joshua Kissi and Micaiah Carter in a statement: “We are artists and archivists. We do not merely make images of Black figures, we document a history that is often unrecorded with intentionality, respect, nuance, and care. We serve as a platform for Black people to stand proudly in their permanence.”
The selected charities are Know Your Rights Camp, Youth Empowerment Project, National Black Justice Coalition, Black Futures Lab, and The Bail Project, that deal with civil rights, education/arts, intersectionality, community building, and criminal justice reform. You can see some of the prints—$100 USD apiece, plus tax and shipping—from the sale down below, which begins on June 19, otherwise known as Juneteenth, through July 3, the day before America’s Independence Day.
