Photographer Jerry Taliaferro wanted to tell the story of a group that’s so often disenfranchised — black women. But he wanted to do it in a way that made their internal and external beauty impossible to ignore. That was the nucleus of the Women of the New Tribe photography exhibit that’s opening at the Flint Institute of Arts. According to Taliaferro’s website, “The subjects come from all walks and stages of life, they are mothers and daughters, artists, professionals, and community activists to name a few. Through the use of black and white photography done in a style reminiscent of the high glamour photography of 1930s and ’40s Hollywood, the beauty of the black woman is dramatically laid bare.” The show runs through April 15. Doors open at 5:45 p.m.; lecture begins at 6 p.m.; 1120 E. Kearsley St., Flint;; 810-234-1695; tickets are $40 in advance for per person for FIA members, $60 per person in advance for non-members, $55 per person at the door for FIA members, and $75 per person for non-members at the door.
