Celebrating Juneteenth Through Photography with See In Black

No contributor

Celebrate Juneteenth today with See In Black, a new coalition supporting Black photographers working as the storytellers of their own narratives. Launched with the support of Artifact Uprising, the initiative debuts today—on the anniversary of Freedom Day—with a two-week charity print sale.

“We are artists and archivists. We do not merely make images of Black figures, we document history that is often unrecorded with intentionality, respect, nuance, and care. We serve as a platform for Black people to stand proudly in their permanence,” said See In Black founders Joshua Kissi and Micaiah Carter.

Featuring the work of 80 Black photographers, the sale will donate 100 percent of profits toward five pillars of Black advancement: civil rights, arts and education, intersectionality, community building, and criminal justice reform. Through these criteria, the initiative has chosen five organizations to receive funds, including Know Your Rights Camp, Youth Empowerment Project, National Black Justice Coalition, Black Futures Lab, and The Bail Project.

Open for purchase through July 3, the selection of large-format prints has been produced by Artifact Uprising, who contributed the first 1,500 prints free-of-charge. Works for sale include photographs by artists like Texas Isaiah, Matt Cowen, Mahaneela, Ibra Ake, Gioncarlo Valentine, Flo Ngala, Ashley Pena, Bobby Rogers, Jon Henry, Arielle Bobb-Willis, Cary Fagan, Lawrence Agyei, Lelanie Foster, Rahim Fortune, and Quil Lemons.
