Terrell Clark to speak at Johnson C. Smith University

Charlotte, N.C., February 1, 2012 —  Terrell Clark, an Atlanta-based photographer known for his recent book “Eyes of Uganda: A Sociological Perspective,” will present a free public lecture at 7 p.m. on Feb. 6 at Johnson C. Smith University.

The lecture will take place in Biddle Hall on the university campus, 100 Beatties Ford Road in Charlotte. The program is part of the university’s lecture series entitled Democracy 2012: The Road to Charlotte.

Clark’s book is a visual journey into Uganda that offers a unique perspective on this "gem of Africa." While in Uganda, Terrell engaged with the people of the country and focused on children. He witnessed and documented the young Ugandans ability to sustain with very little. Terrell’s book captures images of children without shoes playing football with makeshift balls, markers or other articles. In many parts of the world, it is from these humble environs that many of today’s football champions are born. It is also from these conditions that the spirit of unity, cooperation and dedication are fostered.

Clark’s work awakens the souls of those who wish to witness a land filled with hope, promise and enduring resilience. His book features an introduction and captions by Johnson C. Smith University Assistant Professor of Political Science Terza Silva Lima-Neves.
