Abstract:

"Atlanta's Morris Brown College was founded by the AME Church in 1881 and shut down by fiscal mismanagement and scandal in 2002. Photographer Andrew Feiler approaches the demise of Morris Brown and the state of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) through the provocative medium of contemporary photography. In the spirit of other contemporary urban photographers such as Joel Sternfeld on NYC's High Line and Andrew Moore in Detroit, Feiler aims his photographic lens onto one embattled black college in Atlanta. Feiler's stated aim is to "open minds, trigger emotion, stimulate discussion, and, perhaps prompt action." His portfolio of images projects a new layer of meaning to the Morris Brown story"--
