About the Exhibit

The collection comes to NSU from the Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Fort Wayne, Indiana. 

Over five years, photographer Michael July approached a variety of individuals and asked them to participate as subject models for a volume he was creating to chronicle the evolution of the Afro in America. He captured the best Afros as worn by people of virtually every shade, ethnicity, country and age group. Exhibition will feature photographs of black hair as well as a collection of traditional and African American picks, hot combs and other accessories.

The Afros exhibition will be displayed in NSU’s 2nd Floor Cotilla Gallery inside of the Alvin Sherman Library.
