Image of exhibit

Through a series of stunning black and white portraits taken by Bay Area social documentary photographer Katie Sugarman, this exhibit affirms that indeed Black Lives Matter.

On view from June 9th to August 31st, the Giving Me Life exhibit powerfully depicts the visual testimonials of nine African American Bay Area transplant recipients, who have overcome incredible obstacles in their respective journeys toward health, wellness and living their best lives—all thanks to the gift of organ, eye, and tissue donation. The exhibit also serves as a vital catalyst for dialogue and advocacy, as the need for more registered African American organ, eye and tissue donors is great--not just here in the Bay Area, but across the U.S.
