Bey uses the camera to depict communities and histories that have largely been underrepresented or unseen.

His work highlights his commitment over four decades to portray African-American history -- but in a direct and poetic way.

The exhibit runs through May 25 and the free admission is available until 9 p.m. Thursday.

Those wishing to visit the museum Thursday are encouraged to reserve a ticket.
