Please, if you are able, visit the Atlanta History Center sometime before April and spend time in its recently opened exhibition, “Let Your Motto Be Resistance: African American Portraits.”
It’s the first of four exhibitions in the Center’s “Civil War to Civil Rights” series and contains nearly 70 images from the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery.
If you can’t make it there yet — Here till April! Plenty of time! — here’s a taste of what you’ll see and how it wound up there: a slideshow of some “Resistance images” with commentary by curator Deborah Willis, a professor of photography at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.
Want to go? “Let Your Motto Be Resistance: African American Portraits” continues through April 25. $15, $12 for peopel ages 65 and older and students older than age 13, $10 for ages 4-12, free for members and kids younger than 4. 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday, noon-5:30 p.m. Sunday. Atlanta History Center, 130 W. Paces Ferry Road N.W., Atlanta. 404-814-4000, www.atlantahistorycenter.org.
