CAUAM presents a book signing with Sheila Pree Bright,  Photographic Artist and Visual Producer of the #1960Now series.  The program will feature a conversation with Director Maurita N. Poole, Ph.D. , who will explore how Bright uniquely uses her camera to document social protest in #1960Now the book. Images from the publication are featured in Radical Lens, now exhibiting at the museum until June 29th. CAUAM Director Maurita N. Poole, Ph.D. states, "These protest photographs presuppose an audience inundated by images on social media. Her focus on activists' signs and texts, rather than on specific leaders, subverts initial expectations of civil rights photography.  Instead of lionizing individuals, Bright presents social justice advocacy in Black Lives Matter as a collective endeavor that involves the decentering of leadership and skillful use of social media."  Following the conversation, Sheila Pree Bright will sign copies of her book #1960Now.  It is comprised of images that juxtapose activism from the past and present.
