Kamoinge, a pioneering photographic collective, was formed in New York in over 50 years ago  to address the under-representation of black photographers in the art world. Kamoinge’s body of work spans the past 50 and included numerous images of daily life in black America in New York City during the last half of the twentieth century.


This panel is part of Columbia University’s Institute for Research in African-American Studies (IRAAS) 2016 Summer Teachers and Scholars Institute (STSI), entitled “The Many Worlds of Black New York.” This portion of the STSI is free and open to the public. To  learn more about the STIS please visit or email .
