    Join VAA live on the BlueJeans network at, Wednesday, August 5, at 6:00 p.m. for a virtual presentation by Jason Dibley, Collections Manager for Prints, Drawings, and Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH). Dibley began identifying images of protests and marches in the MFAH photography archives a few years ago.

    By looking at photographs of protest, Dibley will explore the interaction of event and observation, discussing the ways such images are viewed, published, and understood. Photos will span decades and come from many countries, with a focus on the 1960s Civil Rights Movement in the USA.
