America I AM

Find tickets to the America I AM: The African American Imprint at Wal-Mart stores for the discounted price of $10 for adults and $4 for children. The exhibit at the Atlanta Civic Center runs through September 6. Just note that you cannot purchase the tickets through Wal-Mart online. You’ll need to go to the site and then find a store near you.
