What happens when a Black woman photographer has the agency and control to see the world through her unique lens?

Join the National Portrait Gallery for a screening of The Sound She Saw (2022), a documentary by Crystal Whaley celebrating contemporary Black women photographers. The film features ground-breaking artists Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe, Renee Cox, Fabiola Jean-Louis, Lauri Lyons, Dana Scruggs, Adreinne Waheed, and media executive and creative visionary Marielle Bobo discussing how they use the art of photography as a tool to reclaim agency and redefine narratives. After the screening, there will be a conversation between film-maker Crystal Whaley, photographer Adrienne Waheed, and Rhea L. Combs, director of curatorial affairs. Come learn their stories and be inspired.
