Smithsonian Spotlight: SEASON 2: EPISODE 10

Scurlock Studio

Addison Scurlock's photographs in the early 1900s portrayed African Americans in a way not often seen. With the help of his two sons, George and Robert, the Scurlock Studio has mastered his photographs of weddings, graduations, and families. These remarkable photographs stand as a visual record of not only Washington, DC, but of African-American culture.
