From May 15, 2015 to February 19, 2017 at the Cape Fear Museum, an exhibition called “Reflections in Black and White” will be available to view. The photographs, all black and white photos, were taken in Wilmington in the 1940s and 50’s. While the subjects are doing similar things, like attending parties, playing, or working, they all showcase the significant amount of segregation at the time; not one photograph has a white and black subject in the same frame.
