In conversation with photographer Joshua Rashaad McFadden

Abraham Campus Center, Ballroom A

Award winning photographic artist Joshua Rashaad McFadden holds the MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, Georgia. His work, After Selma, for which he received the International Photography Award, is a photographic reconsideration of the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Seen in these photographs today are community members of all races who mourn the wrongful deaths of black boys and young men, while still fighting for what they thought they had already achieved: civil rights. Their sentiments can be heard: “We have marched from Selma, but fifty years later, where are we now?”
