The Arnika Dawkins Gallery of photographic fine arts is located in Atlanta Georgia. It is a historic cottage, even though it is a small building this doesn’t prevent a large message from leaving it. Their mission is showcasing photographs taken by African Americas featuring the African American community. The Amika Dawkins gallery aims to educate the Atlanta region on the black community by using photographs. This gallery is also special because it is Black-owned. As aspiring curators, we found it important to help black-owned facilities because throughout history these facilities have often been overlooked. The gallery has featured many artists each with their own unique style. For example, Shocoura Marcus, who has photographed during the modern black lives matter movement. Gordon Parks has photographs of families dating back to the 1950s and colored signs can still be seen. Our exhibition would have photographs dating from 1982-89. The eighties were a time of hardship and prosperity for the black community. Our exhibition would fit perfectly with the history lessons that were embedded in the glorious previous exhibits. By reflecting on the everyday life of Spelman and Clark students, will help people outside of the community let go of negative opinions. Also, the images feature historic evens from two schools that have contributed to Atlanta and the United States. This exhibit will help bring the community together as the demographics continue to shift.
