Gallery seeks photos for exhibit on equality

The 567 Center for Renewal is currently seeking entries for their January exhibit, “Black & White.” In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, “Black & White” will feature black and white photography that explores modern-day issues of race and equality.

Dr. King was an instrumental part of the Civil Rights movement that has far reaching implications for not just African-Americans, but for all races. “Black & White” may include photos that celebrate these accomplishments for all races or that address the challenges that racial minorities still face.

The 567 plans to feature amateur photographers alongside professionals, so even high-quality cell phone photography may be included. Anyone who is interested in participating must submit their no later than December 15. Exhibit guidelines can be found at http://the567.org/call-for-artists/.
