Join us November 3 for a special event:
Gayle x Gayle: A Father-Daughter Journey into Living While Black Through Photojournalism
Wednesday November 3, 4-5pm On WebEx (please note new link)
Introduction by Adrienne Lee Atterberry, PhD
PRODiG Fellow and Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology, SUNY New Paltz
Please read the chapter The Promise from C Wright Mills’ book, The Sociological Imagination to prepare.
Professor Gayle will take us on an engaging journey into the photographic documentation of Black life over six decades by both Professor Gayle and her father, the late James Gayle. There are recurring themes in the images, which mainstream media overlooked for one reason or another.
As we look at this project’s images, where does the sociological imagination fit?
And when talking about reality, whose reality is it?
Let’s spend an evening engaging in this conversation from a mass communications, fine art, and sociological point of view.

She is a photojournalist, educator, and researcher earning her doctorate in Mass Communications from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.
