The current exhibit, called "Human Rights, Human Wrongs", displays over 300 photos depicting both the fight for civil rights, and innumerable examples of inhumane acts and atrocities carried out around the world between the years of 1945 through 1994.
Some of the images of "Human Wrongs" were disturbing, as depiction of violence and torture were explicitly presented. However I found several innocuous looking photos even more horrifying after reading the accompanying stories related to them.
This stunning display of photojournalism was definitely illuminating. It was also a bit depressing to witness such widespread examples of inhumane treatment over the years and across the globe. The photos were arranged chronologically and jumped without notice from country to country, as if to highlight that racial intolerance and injustice knows no boundaries.
It is exciting to think that this exhibit touched only a small fraction of the wealth of photos in the Black Star collection. There will be enough material for many more curated shows to come.
