The Documentary Photo & Video Exhibit is an art project that was originally slated for exhibition this Spring, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and temporary closure of Richmond Museum of History in Richmond, California, this exhibit has been changed into a full online presentation here at www.dougharrismedia.com.
I was excited to present this blend of archival photos and video clips from our award winning four-part An Exploration of Our History documentary series on the walls at the museum. By changing a negative into positive, we crafted this presentation to offer a considerably larger number of photos and video clips that now give viewers an even larger perspective of the rich history of the African American experience in North Richmond, California.
McClymonds: School of Champions is a documentary being produced by Doug Harris that will examine the pending closure of a renowned high school in Oakland, California that has produced some of the greatest athletes in the history of sports in America.
With a student body enrollment of under 400, the school's football team has won three out of the last four CIF state championships, and has regularly sent 95% of its graduating seniors on to college. In February 2020, the high school recieved notice that a contaminated underground water well was releasing cancerous chemicals onto the campus forcing the district to close down the school prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
