Summary "As the United States navigates a political moment defined by the close of the Obama era and the rise of #BlackLivesMatter activism, Aperture magazine releases "Vision & Justice", a special issue guest edited by Sarah Lewis, the distinguished author and art historian, addressing the role of photography in the African American experience. Inspired by Frederick Douglass's 1864 speech "Pictures and Progress," a call to consider the transformative power of pictures in affecting change in the United States, the immense range of images and and writing in "Vision & Justice" underscores photography's unique corrective power and ability to shape a new vision of the country" -- Publisher.
