Picturing Home: Family Albums as Historical Memoir. Special Collections Gallery at Duke University's Perkins Library through 28 October during library hours; call 684-3009 for schedule.
This evocative exhibit documents the history of four generations of the Davis family of Hampton, Virginia. Chloe Tarrant Campbell created the first photography album in the 1870s prior to moving from Alabama to Mississippi. Her daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughters continued the photographic tradition, creating a rich record of African American life from Reconstruction to the civil rights era. The exhibit is drawn from the Special Collections Library's Davis Family Papers Collection.
