BBC Profiles Hugh Mangum Photographs

"African-Americans in Mangum's home state of North Carolina were the target of serious discrimination, as they were in other parts of the South. But the town of Durham, where he was born and raised, had an "unusually prosperous black community" says Stacke, with some African-American entrepreneurs owning thriving businesses there."

—"The photographer who rejected racism in the American south," Rob Brown, BBC World Service
