Join us in the Great Room for a screening and discussion of Brooklyn-based photographer, musician and activist Bev Grant’s film, Bev Grant Photography: Photographs of Struggle for Change Through the Eyes of an Insider.
The film combines Grant’s photographs of the protest movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s with her personal narratives of these events and her own path to activism.
After moving to New York City in the 1960s, Grant began photographing while participating in demonstrations such as the No More Miss America protest in Atlantic City and the anti-Vietnam War Jeannette Rankin Brigade in Washington, DC. As a member of the film collective New York Newsreel she gained access to groups including the Young Lords Party, the Black Panther Party and the Poor People’s Campaign.
This event is in conjunction with our exhibition Bev Grant Photography: 1968-1972, on view through March 27, and the launch of her book by the same name, published by OSMOS Books, New York (2021). Click here to order the book!
