Pictures Tell The Story

and we want many stories to be told through the lens of Ernest Withers.

The Withers Collection Museum and Gallery is committed to opening his archive to educational content creators. If you think that the history that Dr. Withers captured will help bring a narrative to live, we’re here for you. Whether you’d like to use a picture of his in a book, documentary, social media post, or any other project, we’d love to help you make that happen. Please contact us using the form below to license rights to reproduce Withers images.

Only a small potion of Withers’ archive has been digitized and made available to the public. If you’re looking for a specific image to help you tell a story, or a specific event that you think Withers may have captured, you can use the same form to contact us.
