#UPFRONT with the cast of 'Negative Exposure' + The High Museum's 'Picture the Dream'

This week's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry features the executive producer and cast members of the new film Negative Exposure - Bishop Eric Davis and Charles Black. We also give you an all access pass to the High Museum of Art's newest exhibition Picture the Dream The Story of the Civil Rights Movement through Children's Book. Co-curators Virginia Shearer and Andrea Davis Pinkney give us all the details and more. 

Negative Exposure is a faith-based film, executive produced by Bishop Eric Warren Davis, that features a flipped society where African American police officers are committing police brutality against White citizens in a southern town. The film is also "call-to-action" and is done in partnership with the National Black Caucus of State Legislators. Negative Exposure is directed by Tony Tite. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Pz6w8fdM1g">Click here to watch the trailer.

Both ladies open up about the inspiration behind the exhibition, the featured artists, the exhibition's companion film and the Alliance Theater connection with Atlanta's very own Pearl Cleage.
