Black Gold is an exhibit of photographs and interviews with Black entrepreneurs and creatives in Japan. The project, created by Cameron Peagler, an American artist, photographer, and longtime resident of Japan, hopes to inspire Black youth to study abroad and strengthen relationships with the Black and Japanese communities in Japan. The curator for this project is Catherine Harrington. Black Gold received a grant from the US Department of State’s Citizen Diplomacy Action Fund.

This exhibit can be viewed in person at The Ohio State University from October 24-November 10 at the Frank W. Hale, Jr. Black Cultural Center. An opening reception, featuring an introduction to the project by  Cameron Peagler (delivered virtually) and remarks from scholars and students, will be held on October 24, 3:30-4:30, in the MLK room at the Hale Center.
