Big Mouth Ben

21818085384_3bb4644da1_oThis is Big Mouth Ben and his fiancee, Tanya. They own a business on historic Sweet Auburn Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward section of Atlanta. Just steps away is the bridge under which he used to live when he was a wheelchair-bound drug addict. This photo is part of First Stop: Selections from A Streetcar Named Aspire. You’ll meet most of the folks in the exhibit (as did I).  You’ll even discover easy ways to help some. To help Ben, get off the Atlanta Streetcar at the MLK stop and buy something, anything, at his convenience store nearby. Please.
