STREET SIGNS

An exhibit of photographs by Jim Alexander documenting the mass struggle for social and economic justice in the South.

The Georgia Peace Center is excited to host this exhibit during the peace season, January 14-April 7, 2012.  We plan to use the exhibit and the strong messages it communicates to continue building connections and bonds between the growing interest among working class communities in the Peace and Justice movement.

As we move into the second decade of the 21st century, the cause of peace and justice in the worlds needs all shoulders to the wheel.  The peace movement must make issues such as education, racism, economic determination a central part of their platform in order to make the movement more relevant. We take our cue from the growing “Occupy” movement, which is demonstrating the power a few dedicated people to move individuals from apathy to activism.

Street Signs opens January 14 with a reception 7pm-10pm and artist talk at 8pm-9pm.

Jim Alexander has spent over forty years refining his art of documentary photography. A photojournalist, teacher, activist, entrepreneur and media consultant, Mr. Alexander has been on the scene -- at festivals, concerts, cultural events, rallies, demonstrations, meetings and marches, photographing events that guided the course of history.
