“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a lens, darkly; but then face to face…”

I Corinthians, chapter 13, verses 11-12

About the Film

The New York Times on “Through a Lens Darkly”

The New York Times, Through a Lense Darkly

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/27/movies/through-a-lens-darkly-on-african-american-photography.html?_r=0

“…Mr. Harris, an artist as well as a filmmaker, argues that the humanity, the full membership of African-Americans in the larger American family, is precisely what has been at stake in the work of black photographers. He tells their stories partly as a way of looking at history from a new angle and partly because their careers are fascinating and revealing in their own right.

A lot of knowledge about slavery, abolitionism, Jim Crow and the civil rights movement comes to us through pictures, but we don’t always think about their sources and meanings. Mr. Harris marshals an impressive collection of scholars, artists and photojournalists to help us understand what we see in portraits of enslaved blacks and 19th-century antislavery crusaders like Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth, and to appreciate the vision of pioneering 20th-century photographers like James VanDerZee and Gordon Parks.”

“A rich and lyrical tapestry that is both personal and epic in scope, Thomas Allen Harris’s extraordinary documentary, Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People, is a unique examination of they way black photographers—and their subjects—have used the camera as a tool for social change from the time photography was invented to the present.”

About Star Jones

“ Star Jones (previously Star Jones Reynolds; born March 24, 1962) is an American lawyer, journalist, writer, and television personality. She is known for her former role as a co-host of the ABC weekday morning talk show The View from 1997 to 2006. She was one of sixteen contestants of the fourth installment of Celebrity Apprentice, coming in fifth place. […]

Television career
Jones was recruited by Court TV in 1991 as a commentator for the William Kennedy Smith rape trial and spent several years as a legal correspondent for NBC’s Today and NBC Nightly News.
She left NBC in 1994 to preside in her own court show, Jones & Jury. Although only a short-lived stint, it made her the first Black person to serve as a television judge of a courtroom series, the second being Judge Joe Brown. Jones and Jury was the 2nd ever court show that used the arbitration-based reality format, succeeding The People’s Court.
Although Jones and Jury was canceled after only one year, Jones quickly rebounded: shortly thereafter, she was signed up as chief legal analyst on Inside Edition, where she was assigned to lead the coverage of the O.J. Simpson murder case. She was the only reporter to interview Simpson during his civil trial, which she covered for American Journal. […]

In August 2012 Jones appeared as Judge Grace Lyford in Drop Dead Diva in the episode “Pick’s & Pakes. […]
She is a good friend of Wendy Williams and has often appeared on The Wendy Williams Show.
Books
Jones has written three books. The first, You Have to Stand for Something, or You’ll Fall for Anything, is a collection of autobiographical essays published in 1998. In January 2006, Jones published her second book, Shine: A Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Journey to Finding Love, detailing changes she made to reshape her life, including her marriage and dramatic weight loss. Her most recent book, Satan’s Sisters, a work of fiction, was released on March 22, 2011[…]”
