After serving in World War II, John Glanton returned home to Minnesota and used his camera to capture the sights and scenes of everyday life for African Americans in Minneapolis, highlighting black-owned businesses, the music and club scene, weddings and other family occasions. Glanton's photos in "Double Exposure: Images of Black Minnesota in the 1940s" offer a rare look into the lives and lifestyles of families and individuals often left out of histories of Minnesota's past.
