DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 28, 2017 to
This year marks the 40-year anniversary of Alex Haley’s American Classic, Roots, a story that sparked an extraordinary dialogue about slavery and ignited a new interest in GENEALOGY.
As we celebrate this 40-year milestone we celebrate the Black Family.
In honor of Black History Month and in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Roots, Beck announces its Black Family Photo Exhibition.
Participants are asked to submit a family photo for a Special Feature Exhibition that will be completed during the
2017 Dogwood Arts Festival.
Alan Jones, an accomplished artist who paints under the pseudonym “Theophilus,” has been commissioned to lead this premier Art Exhibition in partnership with Beck and the Dogwood Arts Festival.
The Beck Family Photos submitted will be incorporated into the exhibit.
Please submit your Black Family Photo electronically no later than
February 28, 2017 to BeckFamily@BeckCenter.net.
In addition to photos being used in the Black Family Exhibition, photos will also become a permanent part of the Beck Archives. Participants are asked to submit along with their photo: the names of all family members as they apper in the photo, information on the year the photo was taken, and any additional information for the Beck Archives.
