#24 – Atlanta History Center – "Let Your Motto Be Resistance" – African American Portraits

When I was invited to visit the Atlanta History Center last week, I truly didn’t know what to expect. After all, I didn’t grow up in Georgia, so I never visited on school field trips like most people who can say they’re Atlanta natives. I was truly awed and could honestly post a few weeks’ worth of posts just about the exhibits there!

“Let Your Motto Be Resistance” is one exhibit you won’t want to miss. A collection of African American portraits tracing 150 years of U. S. History through the lives of well-known African Americans, is a beautiful photography exhibit on display through April 25, 2010.

The Atlanta History Center is offering an admission special of get one FREE Youth Admission with one paying adult, limit 4, expires April 25, 2010.

In addition, 365Atlanta.com and the Atlanta History Center are co-sponsoring our “What’s Your Motto?” contest. Two winners will be chosen who will each win a four-pack of admission tickets – click here for all the details!

Remember, this exhibit of beautiful and inspiring photographs closes on April 25, 2010, so be sure to visit the Atlanta History Center before then so you don’t miss it!
