Hari Jones Hari Jones is the Assistant Director and Curator of the African American Civil War Memorial Freedom Foundation and Museum. One of the foremost authorities on the role of African Americans in the Civil War, Hari presents a refreshingly new perspective on the subject. In his matter- of-fact manner, he reveals just how extensive and well-organized America's African descent community was in its efforts to end slavery in league with the Constitution. A Native of Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, Hari served in the United States Marine Corps for over twenty years retiring as a captain in 1997. Hari Jones may be reached by email at

Hari Jones, Curator of the African American Civil War, has conducted extensive research on African descent covert activities during the Civil War. onald Markle wrote in his book Spies and Spymasters of the Civil War, "Much like the Negro that served in the Union fighting forces, the Negro's contribution to the spying efforts of the Union Army has not received the recognition that it is due. Hari brings these contributions to light in his lecture series entitled: For Light and Liberty: African Descent Spies of the Rebellion.
Hari Jones's lectures entitled For Light and Liberty: African Descent Spies of the Rebellion examines the Africans who laid the foundation of the secret society that informs the League, the American descendants of these Africans who organize the League, those groomed for leadership as the "clash of arms" between North and South approaches, and the operatives who leave a very big footprint in Civil War History.

"That collection is probably the best collection in the country," said Hari Jones, assistant director and curator of the African American Civil War Memorial in Washington, D.C.
"There are dealers and collectors, and it's a matter of what someone is willing to pay at auction," Jones said.
Lee's Bible could be "worth a great deal," Jones said.
"We're talking hundreds of thousands easy," he said.
Jones says the medical items are often the best teaching tools - and also sometimes carry the most monetary value.
Particularly in demand now are artifacts from the U.S. Colored Troops, he said.

A Fortunate Life: Photographs and Photo Drawings of Harold Jones
What: A Fortunate Life---the photographs and photo drawings of Harold Jones Where: ArtsEye, 3550 E Grant Road.
The exhibition at ArtsEye from February 3-April 15, 2010, entitled A Fortunate Life takes a long and substantial look at the photographs and photo drawings of Harold Jones. The exhibition will have current and past work that span Jones' career as a photographer, educator, and insightful observer of the world around us.
Harold Jones often describes his life and career as "fortunate. As an example, Jones tells the story of finding his mentor Van Deren Coke. Coke was an artist, art historian, and curator and was director of the renowned photography program at the University of New Mexico in the 1960's when Jones sent him his self-portraits. These experimental pieces showed one side of Jones' face as a straight photograph and the other side painted with oil. Coke was supportive of Jones' experimental art but of Jones' other talents. He helped launch Jones' 40-year career as an artist, curator, arts administrator, and teacher.
After receiving his MFA from the University of New Mexico, Jones became a curator at the George Eastman House and taught photo history at the University of Rochester. In 1971, he became the founding director of the LIGHT Gallery in New York City---the first gallery to exclusively represent contemporary photographers. In 1975 he became the first director of the Center for Creative Photography and in 1977 he started the Photography Program at the University of Arizona. Presently, he is Professor Emeritus and Volunteer Coordinator of the Voices of Photography---an oral history project located at the Center for Creative Photography. His contributions to the medium of photography have been "pivotal," curator at the Center for Creative Photography Rebecca Senf says. The Center has recently acquired Jones' archives and they will be "essential to researchers of photography for years to come," stated Senf.
ArtsEye gallery owner and curator of the exhibition, Mary Findysz, believes it is not just Harold Jones who has been fortunate: "The title of Harold Jones show is A Fortunate Life.
I have had an incredible opportunity to explore all of Harold's work looking back as well as forward.
In these, Jones alters a photograph by tinting with ink, food coloring, spray paint, pastels and even sandpaper. Jones says this allows him to "massage the information and space of photographic data.
