Newark, New Jersey native Wendel White has made significant accomplishments both in and out of his home state. As a documentary photographer whose primary focus is the Black experience in the United States, White’s captivating work has been displayed in locations as varied as the New Jersey State Museum, San Francisco, California’s The Arts at CIIS, and Charlotte, North Carolina’s Mint Museum. Another major career accolade of White’s is that he has taught at Stockton University for over 35 years and is now a Distinguished Professor of Art there.


One of the more recent accomplishments of White’s is his 2021 receipt of the Robert Gardner Fellowship in Photography from Harvard University‘s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. White utilized this fellowship for Manifest | Thirteen Colonies, a photo project centered around African American material culture from the Thirteen Colonies and Washington, D.C. Manifest | Thirteen Colonies is available for preorder here.  White’s new exhibition of Manifest: Thirteen Colonies will be launching May 16, at the Peabody Museum at Harvard University.
