The Pittsburgh Black Media Federation is proud to sponsor the photography exhibition “Men of the African Diaspora.” The exhibition runs Feb. 2 – 24 at the Boom Concepts Gallery, 5139 Penn Ave., Pgh. 15224, Garfield.

“Men of the African Diaspora” is an exhibition that seeks to disrupt stereotypes of Black men across the African diaspora. These images, from Cuba, Africa, the United States, the Caribbean, and Europe, will transport viewers across cultures and geography. These images will also challenge how viewers see Black men in their environments, without the stereotypes and biases that haunt and encumber their lives—no matter where they live in the world.
