Cranberry Library to host presentation on photographer’s work for Black History Month

A Carnegie Museum of Art archivist will host a presentation on the life and work of Pittsburgh photographer Charles “Teenie” Harris at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7.

Harris, who lived from 1908 to 1998, had distinguished himself as a preeminent photographer for the Pittsburgh Courier, one of the nation’s leading Black newspapers in its time. From 1935 to 1975, Harris gathered more than 70,000 images chronicling Pittsburgh’s Black community, building one of the most detailed and intimate records of Black life in America.

Admission is free, and registration is required.
