A photographer who worked during the rise of the Jim Crow racial segregation era in the South is the subject of a book whose authors will speak at the Atlanta History Center Feb. 10.
Margaret Sartor and Alex Harris’s book “Where We Find Ourselves” is about the discovery of photos by Hugh Mangum, an itinerant portrait photographer who worked in the late 1800s in North Carolina and Virginia. His clientele was both racially and economically diverse. His forgotten glass plate negatives were discovered in the 1970s in a barn slated for demolition.
The event will be held at 7 p.m. at the History Center, 130 West Paces Ferry Road, Buckhead. Admission is $10 for non-members, $5 for members. For more information, see atlantahistorycenter.com.
