"MINORITY PHOTOGRAPHERS, INC., formed over four years ago, is involved in helping photographers in all fields to understand their reality and involvement in it both spiritually and creatively. It helps the photographer of limited financial means overcome difficulties in gaining exposure and recognition for their work." 
"Alex Harsley founded Minority Photographers, Inc. in 1971 in the Lower East Side in New York. He created the nonprofit, 4th Street Photo Gallery, in 1973 as a venue for the group and his growing community of photographers. Exhibitions at the gallery included the work of Curtis Cuffie, Dawoud Bey, Eli Reed, Cynthia MacAdams, Denise Keim, David Hammons and Terry Adkins, and the photos of musician Vernon Reid. Harsley gave Andres Serrano his first exhibition in New York City. It was known as "the Black barbershop of photography," where emerging artists of color mingled with notable artists like Abelardo Morell, Spencer Tunick and A. D. Coleman."
