An ongoing collaborative effort between Ohio State’s Origins: Current Events in Historical Perspective and Getty Images, Picturing Black History seeks to uncover untold stories and rarely seen images of the Black experience, providing new context around culturally-significant moments by bringing them into the light and into view. Blending the breadth and depth of Getty Images’ imagery archives with the renowned expertise of Origins and Ohio State’s History Department, we seek to inform, educate, and move the world forward, by exploring the past.
