ICP Southern Rites with Gillian Laub
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
International Center of Photography New York, NY, 10018
Southern Rites is a 12-year visual study of one community’s struggle to confront longstanding issues of race and equality. In May 2009, The New York Times Magazine published a photo-essay by Gillian Laub entitled, "A Prom Divided," which documented Georgia's Montgomery County High School's racially segregated prom rituals. National outrage led the school to finally have an integrated prom for all students. Laub continued to travel to Montgomery County. "I thought I was going back to kind of show the prom in transition," she says. But she found far more than that, exposing continued racial tensions.
This ICP talk with Gillian Laub will be followed by a book signing.
