Presented by the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts in association with the Wolf Humanities Center's Feb 16 roundtable, Immigration: A Philadelphia Perspective.
For five decades social worker turned photographer Harvey Finkle (Penn MSW '61) has documented immigrant communities as well as social and political activism across Philadelphia and beyond. He began photographing the work of the Sanctuary Movement in the early 1980s. In 2003 his exhibition Philadelphia Mosaic: New Immigrants in America was held at the Free Library of Philadelphia. This pop-up exhibition, made possible by Finkle's 2020 gift of his archive to the Penn Libraries, highlights photographs from both periods.
