      EVENT DETAILS
      Exhibit: Keep All You Wish: The Photographs of Hugh Mangum

      Description:
      A selection of turn-of-the-twentieth-century portraits from the Hugh Mangum Collection, housed at Duke University's David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library; curated by Sarah Stacke, on view through October 20, 2012. Born and raised in Durham, North Carolina, Mangum began establishing studios and working as an itinerant photographer in the early 1890s, traveling by rail through North Carolina and the Virginias. Rare for his time, Mangum attracted and cultivated a clientele that drew heavily from both the African American and white communities, especially in his hometown. A century later, Mangum's portraits allow us to gaze into the faces of early-twentieth-century Durham and the American South.
