Inner City Urban: Vine City - Atlanta, GA
Inner City Urban: Vine City is a photographic documentary series that exhibits the truth and authenticity of the residents of this community. It also challenges the stereotypical misinterpretations of African-Americans narrated by the media.
Vine City is located in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. Although it is a low-income neighborhood, it is a historic African-American community where Dr. King and his family resided during the Civil Rights Movement. As Vine City currently faces urban redevelopment, my work serves as a protest piece to comment on the historical value of Black communities while advocating for affordable housing.
