Film open to public tonight
Posted: September 09, 2011

The Progressive Art and Civic Club will host — in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institute — “Separate But Equal” starting at 7 p.m. at the Greenville Higher Education Center. The event centers around rediscovered photographs of a neglected chapter in African-American history at the dawn of the Civil Rights movement. Professional photographer Henry Clay Anderson, who lived and worked from his established Anderson Photo Services in Greenville from 1948-1960s, photographed virtually every aspect of black society during segregation. The photographs contained in this film are works of art, but are also historical documents. The film’s writer and director, Shawn Wilson, returned to his hometown to interview Anderson as well as a variety of other members of the Greenville community. Together, these materials created a window into a world that has been overlooked in  the aftermath of the Civil Rights movement — the community of black middle-class Southerners who considered themselves first-class Americans despite living in a deeply segregated world. The photographs have been acquired by the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C., and will be on permanent display in 2016.
