    Curator Sarah Stacke gave a talk at the Center for Documentary Studies about her work on the current CDS exhibit "Keep All You Wish: The Photographs of Hugh Mangum," which features work by the turn-of-the-century portrait photographer; the exhibit is on view through October 20. Born and raised in Durham, North Carolina, Hugh Mangum began working as an itinerant photographer in the early 1890s and continued until shortly before his death in 1922, traveling by rail through North Carolina and the Virginias. Rare for his time, Mangum attracted and cultivated a clientele that drew heavily from both the African American and white communities, especially in his hometown. This event was cosponsored by Duke University’s Graduate Liberal Studies program.
