This evening, my mother and I took a trip to the Carnegie Museum of Art (free admission on Thursdays) to see the Teenie Harris exhibit. Teenie Harris was an African American photographer in the Pittsburgh area, mostly active from the 1930s to the 1970s. Photographing for clients, newspapers, and for his own enjoyment, he amassed a collection of 80,000 photos showcasing the lifestyle of African Americans in Pittsburgh. This exhibit showcased nearly 1,000 of the photos he took throughout the years.
