Dr. Andrew WestmorelandPhotos by Birmingham artist Lisa Pickett Saye will be on display in an exhibit, "From Africa to New Orleans," in the Samford University Art Gallery March 5-29. The exhibit is free-of-charge and open to the public.

The 30-piece collection includes black and white and color photos from East Africa (Somalia, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda), West Africa (Gambia and Senegal), Haiti and New Orleans, La. A five-minute video documentary with images from the locations will run continuously.

According to Saye, a former adjunct political science professor at Samford, the exhibit "points to the great and obvious developmental and cultural similarities of these regions taken collectively."
