Description

The Auburn Avenue Research Library and Hammonds House Museum, in collaboration with GAS-ART GIFTS (Gregarious Art Statements), Little Bee Books, and Georgia State University, host Freedom in Congo Square, a compelling new exhibition featuring the illustrated children’s literature of award winning artist R. Gregory Christie. Accompanying these absorbing images is the lyrical prose of renowned author Carole Boston Weatherford, creating a powerful exploration into the lived experiences of enslaved Africans as they struggle to preserve their dignity and African heritage.
