"We are thrilled to share the talents of these photographers who have graced the pages of our newspapers for many years," said ADW Publisher M. Alexis Scott. "This is a chance of a lifetime to get a collector's item to adorn your walls."
The evening event at the Atlanta University Center Woodruff Library includes a silent auction of recent and historic pictures and a forum featuring the photographers themselves. Photographers John Glenn, Horace Henry, JiMi!, Sue Ross, Wendell S. Scott, Bud Smith, Rashidah Sudan, Willie E. Tucker Jr. and Brenda J. Turner will share stories and answer questions about some of their favorite shots and thrilling moments.
"We are happy to partner with the Atlanta Daily World to present this exhibit of local photographers to complement our show on the work of the Pittsburgh Courier's renowned Teenie Harris here at the Atlanta University Center Woodruff Library," said AUC Library CEO Loretta Parham.
The Teenie Harris exhibit of 80 images graces the walls of the library through May 24. It is also free to the public and open various hours throughout the week. Visit the library's website at auctr.edu for specific times.
"Our ADW event is just one day," Publisher Scott said, "so you really don't want to miss this unique opportunity."
ADW is powered by Real Times Media, which also owns the New Pittsburgh Courier, The Chicago Defender, Memphis Tri-State Defender and The (Detroit) Michigan Chronicle.
