Photographic Exhibit
Sunday, July 22. – Sunday, August 19.
The Auburn Avenue Research Library will host the photographic exhibition Grits, Greens and Griots, which captures the oral history of elders, 90 years of age and older, who were born and currently reside in the South. Grits, Greens and Griots, a photographic documentary, captures the words of these elders, in the hope of inspiring the next generation to learn from the past as it builds the future. This exhibit is a collaborative effort between two extraordinary storytellers; author and educator Julie Rainbow and photographer Connie Cross. Grits, Greens and Griots is funded by a grant from the Georgia Humanities Council. The opening event for this exhibit will be held on Sunday, July 22, 2012 at 3:00 p.m.
