Several dozen photographs of black homes were included in The Exhibit of American Negroes. These pictures were intended to show the extent to which African Americans had achieved middle class and professional status, as well as to show the poverty and abject living conditions under which many individuals still lived. Photographs were included from a number of different cities, including Atlanta, Georgia; Knoxville, Memphis, and Chatanooga, Tennessee; and Wilberforce, Ohio.
