This past weekend we went to see Teenie Harris, Photographer: An American Story at the Carnegie Museum if Art. It is a wonderful retrospective of the photographer whose images for the Pittsburgh Courier (the country's most widely circulated African American newspaper during the civil rights era) capture the poetry of every day life and important figures who helped shape the 20th Century.
