“America I AM: The African American Imprint” opened earlier this month at the Civic Center, bringing to Atlanta an exhibit of nearly 500 years of African American contributions to the nation through artifacts, documents, multimedia, photos and music. Some 12 galleries with nearly 15,000 square feet take you through a journey from struggle and triumph to celebration.

To say the exhibit is powerful is, well, an understatement at best. And we’re got free tickets for you.

The exhibition includes more than 200 artifacts, including the doors to the Cape Coast Castle in Ghana (Doors of No Return), Alex Haley’s typewriter used to write Roots, personal effects of Malcolm X, the door key and stool from the Birmingham jail cell that held Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and sports memorabilia from Michael Jordan, Arthur Ashe and Muhammad Ali. It’s developed in part by broadcaster and author Tavis Smiley and was guided by a panel of noted scholars.

We figured Project Q Atlanta could save you $24 plus those pesky Ticketmaster fees by giving away a pair of tickets to the exhibit. What you have to do: Answer the question below as both a comment to this post and an {encode=”[email protected]” title=”email”} to us at Project Q Atlanta.

What impact have African Americans had on the LGBT equality movement?

The contest closes at the end of the day on Wednesday. We’ll pick a winner from among the entrants and get you the tickets, which can be used through July 12. The exhibit is open Tuesdays to Sundays.
