Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture

In the Service of Others: Everyday People in Black & White


Everyday, there are a myriad of hands helping to transform Duke.  These hands nourish students, cut their hair, clean spaces, and build things.  These hands are often invisible in the visible pursuit of higher education.

But, without these hands Duke would cease to be.

Thus, the Mary Lou Williams Center for Black Culture is proud to host an exhibit that focuses on those obscured by their work.  Through black and white photography, Aron Anderson, ’10  (Trinity) and W. Edmund Newsome, 11 (Divinity) capture the humanity of those we take for granted.
