Media Contact: Tameka Kenan-Norman Chief Communications and Marketing Officer 252-972-1333 email@example.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 1, 2019 Black Light Project Seeks Local Subjects Rocky Mount, N.C.-Area residents will have the opportunity to learn about a non-profit organization and nominate men for recognition in an upcoming exhibit at the Imperial Centre for the Arts & Sciences. The Black Light Project, a Greenville-based organization, will expand its project by photographing male community members from Rocky Mount, Nash and Edgecombe counties. Representatives from the Black Light Project will visit Rocky Mount from 6:30-9:30 p.m. on April 5 at the Rocky Mount Mills as part of the city’s First Friday events. The Black Light project is a photography documentary project that presents black males in a positive manner while shifting narratives that are often shared through media. Residents are invited to attend the sessions and learn more about the project and the nomination process. Black Light founder Tonya Lynch will attend the session along with visual artists Bryce Chapman and Randy Curtis. After a process that will include nominations, selections, interviews and pictures, the exhibit will run in the Imperial Centre from January through April of 2020 and feature photographs, information and more about 16 selected subjects. “The Black Light Project is seeking nominations of black, male community members who are unsung heroes,” said Alicyn Wiedrich, Art curator at the Imperial Centre for the Arts & Sciences. “They are looking for guys who aren’t often acknowledged for their good deeds, but also make the community a better place.” Nominations can be made at blacklightproject.com until May 15. Call 252-972-1175 for more details on the information sessions.
