The latest exhibit at Arnika Dawkins Gallery features the work of photographer Jeanine Michna-Bales.
Michna-Bales traveled 1,400 miles to sites along the Underground Railroad. She photographed the landscapes at night, seeing her surroundings much like how those traveling on the Underground Railroad would have experienced on the route.
“This was America’s first civil rights movement,” said Michna-Bales in an interview with Lois Reitzes. “I tried to pick a first-person viewpoint and try to look at what they could have possibly seen as they were moving.”
