Photo exhibition on the Underground Railroad in Oxford | Characteristics


The title of “From Darkness to Light: Photography Along the Underground Railroad”, an exhibition at the Martin-Lett Gallery at the Oxford Performing Arts Center, has a dual meaning. This series of photographs by Jeanine Michna-Bales centers on the secret journey of slaves on foot, hopefully taking them from the darkness of servitude to the light of freedom. However, their journey had many difficulties: they had to find places to rest in the dark of the night, then continue at first light of day the next day.

The exhibition of large photographs of Mishna-Bales, as well as his map of a documented route (for the slaves and the whites who helped them) from central Louisiana in Canada was created to help us imagine what was to be look like the long road to freedom for those who made this arduous journey.
