    The Summer of ’68: Photographing the Black Panthers

    Featuring a collection of 22 photographs by husband-and-wife team Pirkle Jones and Ruth-Marion Baruch. Recent additions to the Museum Collection, these photographs chronicling the lives and work of the controversial, California-based group’s members have never been exhibited at the Norton. The show opens July 30 and will be on view through Nov. 29, 2015.

    The photographs span a variety of subject matter that document the activity of the Black Panther Party during the tumultuous summer of 1968. The exhibit highlights the organization’s work as a catalyst for social change in the community of Oakland, CA. During this time, the Black Panther Party was seen by most of the United States as a violent, militant organization. Pirkle Jones and Ruth-Marion Baruch, in their own distinctive styles, took it upon themselves to portray the party in a different light.
