The African American Atelier, Inc.

Radio Camper Chloe White intently works on editing her news story.

The definition of “atelier” is “workshop or studio”, but the African American Atelier in the Cultural Arts Center in downtown Greensboro is much more than that. WFDD radio camper Chloe White recently sat down with Gallery Assistant Manager Loumecia Koonce.

 ---------------------------
