New Scholarship: “Bright” Oscar Moore

In a new exhibition at Sterling Memorial Library, Yale African American Studies graduate student Camille Owens pieces together the biography of “Bright” Oscar Moore, a black child prodigy who toured and performed in the United States during the late 19th century. After discovering a cabinet card photograph in the Randolph Linsly Simpson African-American Collection at the Beinecke Library, Owens sought to learn more about Moore’s life and career.  Her research has become a fascinating interdisciplinary project that addresses race, disability, prodigy, and memory. Read more about Owens's research in the Yale Library News: Student Research at Yale University Library.
