Ghetto for dark-skinned snapshot subjects at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts

Our Museum of Fine Arts got hold of 50,000 “found” photographs and decided to display 300 of them in an exhibition titled “Unfinished Stories.” The curators decided to create a special ghetto area for snapshots depicting dark-skinned subjects and call it “African American Experience.” The rest of the exhibition featured light-skinned subjects.
