In 1963, a group of Black photographers in New York formed the Kamoinge Workshop. Since then, the collective—which is still active today—has captured the rich diversity of Black experiences through celebrated artistic and documentary photographs. In two panel discussions, early members of the Kamoinge Workshop reflect on their individual contributions, the group’s history, and their ongoing legacy.
