Graced by the photographic skills and artistic influence of #WeLoveATL, the Center for Civil and Human Rights is creating a collection of images & stories highlighting everyday Atlantans who have stood up to fight injustice. We will feature these stories in a variety of events and presentations this year – culminating in a large-scale event this October where we will project a presentation on the side of our building!
The Center’s galleries showcase heroes who put their lives on the line in pursuit of justice. Conversely, our team witness hundreds of beautiful and difficult stories told by visitors who put in their own blood, sweat and tears to power local and global movements. The Time is Right builds a platform for these stories.
Martin Luther King, Jr. said “The time is always right to do what is right” and our project, in partnership with #WeLoveATL, seeks to celebrate Atlanta’s citizens who have answered that call to action. This is an opportunity for Atlantans to bring forward the people who inspire them. The Center hopes that these stories spark a renewed understanding that anytime is the right time to do what is right.
