Featuring Works by Hakeem Adewumi & Celeste Henery

The impact of the on-going displacement of historically Black communities—locally, nationally, and globally—is profound and timeless. Photographers Hakeem Adewumi and Celeste Henery use photographs to exemplify this truth. Centered around Clarksville, a freedom community established in the early 1870’s in West Austin, images of former residents and their families, architectural remains, discarded household items, and historical buildings, honor what was left behind.

This exhibit was curated by Stephanie Lang.
