The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery will host a conversation with Drs. Adrienne L. Childs, John Stauffer, and Jennifer Van Horn explores the approaches to portraiture made during slavery and in relation to slavery and race. Discover how the use of photography, prints, material culture, and painting in this context varied according to sectional differences in the United States as well as across the Atlantic.
Moderated by Portrait Gallery Historian Kate Clarke Lemay, this program is hosted by PORTAL, the museum’s Scholarly Center, and is part of the Greenberg Steinhauser Forum in American Portraiture.
