The Tuskegee University Archives has acquired a treasure trove of works by this succession of Tuskegee photographers – Arthur P. Bedou, C.M. Battey, and P.H. Polk.
"Pride of the Swift-Growing South: Tuskegee Institute Photography" presents many of these pieces publicly for the first time. These images illuminate the lives of African Americans who attended or taught at Tuskegee in the Jim Crow era and cover a range of subjects, including portraits of Tuskegee faculty, students, and area residents; Washington’s public speaking engagements; and homecoming parades, athletic events, and other candid images depicting student life.
