Are you a Black girl in a Philadelphia middle school looking to connect with others your age who have a mutual interest in photography? If so, then this virtual photo club is for you! In our four weeks together on Zoom, we will discuss images, photographers, and social issues related to Black life. Our goal is to build community through conversation and help young Black girls initiate the development of an intentional mindset surrounding photography. Upon request, we will also share information and resources to help advance your ability to both interpret and create visual art. Curated by Black womxn photographers Ruby Johnston and Kyra Williams, this is a safe space to ask questions and explore the realities of modern Blackness with a focus on Black girlhood, storytelling, and a love for photography.
