Manifest  

“In Manifest, Wendel White makes historical objects intimate and singular. These objects—an oxidized spoon, an open diary, a slave bill of sale, and perhaps above all, a lock of Frederick Douglass’s hair—are all embodied, had once touched flesh, been manipulated by human hands, had lived in the world before they were packed up into the archive.”—Leigh Raiford

The images in Manifest, intimate yet monumental, reflect this country’s overlapping histories of slavery, abolitionism, and segregation and the struggle for freedom and equality
