Join the brothers of Black Men Smile™ in this short documentary as they host their Inaugural Photo Walk through Castleberry Hill, Atlanta's most densely populated square of Black owned businesses.  Co-Directors Carlton Mackey and Devan Dunson stopped in at some of the businesses they've collaborated so closely with over the last couple years and who have supported their mission: Miya Bailey's World Famous City of Ink Tattoo and Gallery, Habanos Cigar Shop and Lounge, and Zucot Gallery, the largest Black owned art gallery in the Southeast.  

This free community event was the first of a series of photo walks across the country bringing together men and women, young and old for dialogue, fellowship, and a chance to celebrate the way we see ourselves.  

Special thanks to Coady Duffy of C Duffy Films for capturing and editing.  Special thanks to K.I.N.G.S.We Are and Music Makes Me Happy for supporting this event in extraordinary ways.
