Author and artist Ashley Bryan’s remarkable career spans half a century, during which time he has published more than fifty titles. This exhibition celebrates his work and showcases the breadth of his creative output. This exhibition showcases the breadth and depth of Bryan’s creative output, from the dynamic figure drawings he made while serving as a soldier in World War II, to his first published book in 1967, to his 2016 book "Freedom Over Me", awarded a Newbery Honor, Coretta Scott King Author Honor, and Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor.
At a young age, Bryan noticed the lack of children’s books with African American characters. Bryan is committed to filling that void in Black representation by creating books about the African and African American experiences.
At The Reserve Collier Hills Apartments in Atlanta, Georgia, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
