Double Exposure is a dynamic series based on the notable photography collection supporting the Earl W. and Amanda Stafford Center for African American Media Arts at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. This, the fifth volume in the series, presents fifty images of African Americans in uniform, from the Civil War to the War in Iraq. The selection of photographs, which exemplify stories of patriotism, courage, and dignity, are enriched by the unique perspective of Frank Bolden, Jr., Administrator of NASA and Gail Lumet Buckley, author of American Patriots. Photographers include Anthony Barboza, a staff photographer in the U.S. Navy, Henry Clay Anderson who studied photography at Southern University under the G.I. Bill, and Robert Scurlock whose famous photographs of the Tuskegee Airmen still live with us today.
