Juneteenth celebrates freeing the last enslaved individuals in the US. Artifact Uprising has joined with See In Black to support Black photographers in telling their stories through a limited two week charity print sale. A selection of 70+ images will be donated by See In Black, a coalition of Black photographers who serve as storytellers of their own narratives.
“We are artists and archivists. We do not merely make images of Black figures, we document history that is often unrecorded with intentionality, respect, nuance, and care. We serve as a platform for Black people to stand proudly in their permanence,” said See In Black Founders Joshua Kissi and Micaiah Carter.
Prints will be produced by Artifact Uprising, using the company’s professional-grade giclée print process with rich, true-to-life color on archival fine art paper. Artifact Uprising also will be donating the first 1,500-quantity Large Format Prints (11×14 size) ordered to benefit the initiative.
During the two-week sale on See In Black, people will be able to purchase more than 70 empowering prints from Black photographers. Each print will retail for $100 plus tax and shipping. All proceeds will go to support the following organizations: Know Your Rights Camp, the Youth Empowerment Project, the National Black Justice Coalition, Black Futures Lab and The Bail Project.
There will be an additional option to purchase an Artifact Uprising frame for the print at 20% discount with See in Black program’s unique promo code.
Prints for sale will be available on See In Black’s website starting Jun. 19 and will end on Jul. 3.
