Now Accepting Nominations: The Black Light Project

Friday, March 22, 2019

The Imperial Centre is teaming up with the Black Light Project for a Spring 2020 exhibition featuring local black men in the Rocky Mount (Nash/Edgecombe County) area. We are seeking your nominations now through May 15, 2019 to be considered as a participant in this photography exhibition.

The Black Light Project is a non-profit organization with a mission to share stories of individuals from traditionally under-served populations in an impactful and empowering way. Through training, education, and the arts we assist communities in recognizing the positive influences within their community, as well as provide a platform for discussion of applying positive cultural narratives and dispelling harmful societal narrative.

For more information, please go to the Black Light Porject’s website.

Or, go ahead and nominate someone now by going to this online form.

Want to learn more?

You’re invited to two free events on Sunday, March 31st, 2-4pm at the Imperial Center and Friday, April 5th, 6:30-9:30pm at Rocky Mount Mills. Meet Tonya Lynch (Producer of the Black light Project), Bryce Chapman (Photographer), Randy Curtis (Photographer), and some participants in the Greenville Black Light Project. Learn more about the Black Light Project and the kind of “unsung heroes” we’re looking for in Rocky Mount. Nominate someone you know and spread the word that we have an open call for community members to participate!
