Pic of the Week: Arresting Images of African American Culture

1 Comment 15 November 2011

A new exhibit at USC’s Fisher Museum of Art, “Posing Beauty in African American Culture” presents artistic photographs of African Americans throughout the decades.  As the review from the L.A. Times states: “Taken together, these photographs ar far more than just striking pictures of African American men and women.  They document concepts of beauty throughout several decades of African American culture.  And each piece is the starting point for an intriguing discussion about what is considered beautiful, both within African American culture and within society in general.”

Wow!  If you’re on the West Coast, try to check it and report back on our site or tweet us @beautyskew
