John Johnson wore many hats throughout his life, but perhaps the most significant one was that of the talented and prolific community photographer. His extensive portfolio of photographs document the daily lives of Lincoln's African-American community from 1910 to 1925. This exhibit includes dozens of Johnson's photographs, each documenting one part of his community. In addition to the photographs, the exhibit features an interactive virtual photo album and sections from an oral history of Ruth (Talbert) Greene Folley's memories of Lincoln's African-American community in the early 1900s.

The exhibit runs from April 1, 2019 to May 25, 2019. Come see it for yourself at the Nebraska History Museum today!

Black and White in Black and White: Images of Dignity, Hope, and Diversity in America is curated by Douglas Keister and presented with support from California State University, Chico.
