The film explores the role of photography, since its rudimentary beginnings in the 1840s, in shaping the identity, aspirations, and social emergence of African Americans from slavery to the present. The dramatic arc is developed as a visual narrative that flows through the past 160 years to reveal black photography as an in- strument for social change, an African American point-of-view on American history, and a particularized aesthetic vision.
