ATLANTA -- Spelman College Museum of Fine Art, BronzeLens Film Festival of Atlanta, and NBAF Contemporaries will partner to present a screening of Keith Purvis’ “Travis and Tabitha,” Thursday, April 16, at 6:30 p.m.

This unexpected situation forces them to make profound decisions on what they want to do with the rest of their lives.

The Museum's Black Box Series uniquely affords the opportunity for cultural producers to share in-progress works on the art and culture of the African Diaspora in front of a live audience for feedback, engagement and encouragement.
