Dawoud Bey: Selections from Night Coming Tenderly, Black | October 10, 2020–March 7, 2020 | Kemper Museum | This exhibition of the work of Chicago-based photographer and educator Dawoud Bey (American, born 1953).

This exhibition of the work of Chicago-based photographer and educator Dawoud Bey (American, born 1953) features selections from his recent black-and-white photographic series Night Coming Tenderly, Black. These images reimagine sites along the last stops of the Underground Railroad from Cleveland and Hudson, Ohio, to Canada, a free country for self-liberated African people. Bey finds inspiration for this series in the soft tones and significant subjects—African Americans and New York City
