The Gallery at Main

Black History Month 2015 Exhibit in the Gallery at Main

In February 2015, the Gallery at Main hosts an exhibit of historical photographs of Black sports and recreation as part of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh Black History Month programs and events.

The exhibit contains three sets of images: Photographs by Teenie Harris from Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh - Main's archives in the Oliver Room; images from Carnegie Library's Pittsburgh Photographic Library collection, and images from the Senator John Heinz History Center's Dorsey-Turfley Family Photographs collection.

The images from this show that belong to Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh's Pittsburgh Photographic Library collection will be traveling to various CLP branch locations in the months following Black History Month/February 2015.
