Emory University Center for Ethics

For Immediate Release
---
Co-Directors of Beautiful in Every Shade, Carlton Mackey and Ross Oscar Knight, are the winners of One Region Atlanta’s Ideas Challenge grant for 2014-2015.

Out of nearly 200 Ideas Challenge submissions, the two were awarded for their idea to utilize the platform www.typicalamericanfamilies.com to bridge faith and culture in the city of Atlanta.

This created a joint partnership between Beautiful in Every Shade, the campaign under which Typical American Families is housed and Emory University’s Ethics & the Arts program.

Up to 15 Atlanta families will be chosen for a free family portrait session with celebrated photographer Ross Oscar Knight.  Families will receive a free copy of their photo and images will be displayed in a Traveling Photo Exhibit.  Participating families will be brought together at an unveiling ceremony and exhibit at the Center for Ethics where they will share a multi-cultural meal and engage in community dialogue.

If you would like the opportunity to have your “typical” American family photographed and your story featured, please share your story and apply at http://typicalamericanfamilies.com/ . Deadline for submissions is December 12, 2014.
