Terry Adkins (1953–2014) created the portfolio The Philadelphia Negro Reconsidered in collaboration with The Common Press at the University of Pennsylvania, which is directed by Matt Neff. The portfolio was inspired by The Philadelphia Negro - W.E.B. Du Bois’ pioneering demographic study of Philadelphia’s original 7th Ward, the neighborhood in which The Print Center is located. The exhibition is supported by the Department of Fine Arts, School of Design, University of Pennsylvania.

The Common Press is the letterpress printing studio at the University of Pennsylvania. The press is a collaboration of interests at Penn, including writing (Kelly Writers House), print culture (the Rare Book & Manuscript Library) and visual arts and design (the School of Design). The facility provides a mixed media environment where students can move between digital and manual image making, collaborating with writers, printmakers and others in the book arts. The Common Press exists to assist in teaching design and to facilitate collaborative projects across the university. It was founded on January 17, 2006, the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin’s birth.
