Kenneth P. Green Sr. Photography: DeFremery Park
Saturday Open Gallery in observance of Black History Month: February 16, 2013, 1-4 pm
As staff photographer for the Oakland Tribune between 1968-1982, Kenneth P. Green Sr. captured in the still image some of the most dramatic and dynamic social changes occurring not only in Oakland, but in our time. His work reflects the best of both photojournalism and photography – a chronicle of the here and now, and a collection of personal portraits that illustrate the timeless, human side of the people involved. This exhibition highlights early photographs taken at DeFremery Park in Oakland, a center for community organizing, an important base for the Black Panther Party and for the nascent Black student movement that was taking place at Laney and Merritt Colleges.
Exhibit hours: Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
* The exhibit is located in a meeting space that is sometimes occupied; call 510-643-9670 in advance for room availability.
