A Million Faces: The Photography of John W. Mosley
An Exhibition in Partnership with Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection, Temple University Libraries
John W. Mosley (1907–1969) was one of the premier photojournalists of 20th-century Philadelphia. He chronicled the vitality of the black community and life in the segregated city from the 1930s through the height of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. A catalogue of A Million Faces is available for purchase in our museum store.
For their generous support of this exhibition and catalogue, Woodmere extends sincere thanks and appreciation to the Lomax Family Foundation, William M. King Charitable Foundation, Ethel Benson Wister, and Mary G. David.
