See In Black Celebrates Juneteenth With Charitable Photography Initiative

START body

In celebration of Juneteenth, the holiday that commemorates the freeing of the last remaining enslaved people after the Civil War, See In Black is partnering with Artifact Uprising to launch a photography initiative in support of Black artists. The two-week charity print sale, which begins today and goes until July 3, offers powerful pieces from the 80 Black photographers currently committed, including CR contributors Micaiah Carter and Renell Medrano.

Founded by Carter and Joshua Kissi, See In Black is a coalition of Black photographers who serve as storytellers for their own narratives. “We are artists and archivists,” the founders said. “We do not merely make images of Black figures, we document history that is often unrecorded with intentionality, respect, nuance, and care. We serve as a platform for Black people to stand proudly in their permanence.”

Each work in the charity sale will sell for 0, with 100 percent of the proceeds going towards organizations that support the Black Lives Matter cause and the five key pillars of Black justice. These include Know Your Rights Camp, the Youth Empowerment Project, the National Black Justice Coalition, Black Futures Lab, and The Bail Project. Artifact Uprising, which is producing the professional-grade prints, will also donate the first 1500-quantity photos ordered to support the initiative.

See In Black’s prints are now available online.
