Dawoud Bey: Harlem USA
In 1979 African American photographer Dawoud Bey held his first solo exhibition at the Studio Museum in Harlem, showing a suite of 25 photographs titled Harlem USA. Bey had been in residence at that museum for one year, and he had made the surrounding neighborhood a subject of study since 1975. Though raised in Queens, Bey’s family had roots in Harlem, and it was a youthful visit to the exhibition Harlem on My Mind at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1969, that had given Bey his determination to become an artist.
Thanks to the efforts of more than 20 patrons, led by Leadership Advisory Committee members Anita Blanchard and Les Coney, the complete vintage set of Harlem USA has been acquired by the Art Institute.

When Debra Ehrhardt was an eighteen year old secretary in Kingston Jamaica, she and her passion for America bumped into a handsome CIA agent over a bowl of oxtail soup on her lunch break. It was during the turbulent seventies of the Manley Era that she saw her chance. A pinhole of opportunity that she could squeeze through with the help of this love-struck American. She began a dangerous adventure that only the single minded passion of a teenage girl would chance. The boundary between bravery and foolishness blurred as she became more desperate. When she agreed to smuggle a million US dollars in cash to a mysterious contact somewhere in Miami, the agent became her accomplice. Only he had no idea.
