ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

The impact of the on-going displacement of historically Black communities—locally, nationally, and globally—is profound and timeless. Photographers Hakeem Adewumi and Celeste Henery use photographs to exemplify this truth. Centered around Clarksville, a freedom community established in the early 1870’s in West Austin, images of former residents and their families, architectural remains, discarded household items, and historical buildings, honor what was left behind.
