Chicago Alliance Of African American Photographers Captures These Times To Teach History To Future G
A picture is worth a thousand words, as the saying goes. While cell phone cameras an I-pads have given the average person an opportunity to become a news reporter and Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and other social media have given everyone a platform to share images, society still depends on the trained eye, skilled hands, and special equipment of the professional photographer whose newspaper and magazine images freeze those memorable moments in time and preserve them as history lessons for future generations. Today members of the Chicago Association of African American Photographers (CAAAP) discuss their mission of capturing these historic times and defining the African American experience for future generations
