"The Black Experience" Photo History at IU Northwest

A photo exhibit of people and events dealing with the history of African Americans in Gary is currently on display through the month of March at Indiana University Northwest in the University Library, first floor. 
The Black Experience: A Photo History is a collaboration between the Calumet Regional Archives and the Community Education Cooperative, and includes photographs of early laborers who helped build the "City of Steel," the first African American born in Gary, as well as the "common folk" who are the champions of sport, civil rights, and social services. 

"The pictures in this exhibit offer snapshots of people and moments of the Black experience in Gary," says L'Sana Djahspora, community member. "Faces, places, and events, some you may recognize, some that may surprise."
IU Northwest Library hours are Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 1  to 5 p.m. More information on The Black Experience: A Photo Experience is with Stephen McShane, of the Calumet Regional Archives at 219-980-6628.
