Frustrated by the divisive headlines covered in the media, local non-profit Silent Images took on a mission, asking everyday citizens to submit photos identifying the unseen heroes of Charlotte. The community responded by the dozens, contributing stories of hope, dedication and sacrifice. The result is a new panel exhibit on display at Levine Museum of the New South. Silent Heroes celebrates the Charlotte community’s unsung heroes through a collection of the photographs taken by Charlotte-area citizens, documenting the everyday heroes walking among us – in our workplace, our neighborhoods, local coffee houses, soccer fields and bus stops.
Silent Images is a nonprofit organization founded in 2007 that uses journalistic photography, videography, and writing to tell stories of hope in the midst of persecution, poverty, and oppression. To learn more about the organization visit www.silentimages.org.
