A Photographic Celebration of African-American Women
, 2015

Free and open to the public

The Indianapolis Public Library hosts this nationally-touring exhibit, created by noted North Carolina photographer Jerry Taliaferro, which celebrates the spiritual and physical beauty of African-American women from all walks and stages of life.

The exhibit is comprised of dramatic black and white portraits of black women, including 11 strong and courageous women of Indianapolis who were nominated and selected for their roles as mothers, daughters, artists, professionals and community activists. Individually and collectively they tell the story of how their families and our community have changed because of them.

Children in grades 4 - 8 can participate in a free workshop throughout September presented by A Girl's Gift, Inc. In addition to viewing the exhibit, they'll design a dream board to express their internal hopes, dreams and plans. Call 275-4222 to register a group.

"Women of a New Tribe" is presented by the Library's African-American History Committee in partnership with The Indianapolis Public Library, The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation and the Indianapolis Recorder.
