Wendel White’s exhibition includes work from two projects; "Schools for the Colored" and "Red Summer.” Each project is concerned with the remnants of America’s complex and unresolved history of race. “Schools” is a photographic portfolio of the architectural remains of legally segregated sites for the education of African Americans between the late nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries. These structures are located in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. The images from “Red Summer” are landscapes made in various locations throughout the U.S. and refers to a series of deadly race riots that swept across the country during 1919. This project depicts locations where significant racial conflict occurred between 1917 and 1923, using Red Summer (1919) as a center-point for an era of significant racial violence in post World War I America.
