This museum displays photography and early 20th-century camera equipment. They also feature contemporary exhibits featured on a rotating basis. Hugh Mangum was an interesting man. At the turn of the 20th Century, when life was incredibly difficult for the African-American community in the photographer used his camera to challenge racial barriers and capture the southern states of the US, this self-taught photographer used his camera to challenge racial barriers and capture the diversity of the American South. A great tribute to a courageous and compassionate photographer.
