The Do Good Fund, Inc. is a public charity based in Columbus, Georgia. Since its founding in 2012, the fund has focused on building a museum-quality collection of photographs taken in the American South since World War II. The collection ranges from works by more than a dozen Guggenheim Fellows to images by less well-known emerging photographers working in the region.
Do Good’s mission is to make its collection of over 500 images broadly accessible through regional museums, nonprofit galleries and nontraditional venues, and to encourage complimentary, community-based programming to accompany each exhibition.
Baldwin Lee taught photography at the University of Tennessee Knoxville for 32 years.  He received an undergraduate degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he studied with Minor White, and a graduate degree from the Yale School of Art, where he studied with Walker Evans. Lee’s work in photography has been shown widely in such venues as the Museum of Modern Art in New York. His work has been recognized by the award of a fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Indie-rock/pop band, The Roosevelts, have cultivated a sound that’s a little bit bluesy, a little bit pop and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll. When forced to give it a name, the boys will tell you it’s “harmony-driven American rock with a ‘70s sensibility.” Other tastemakers are describing their sound as “warm, rootsy pop”. The release of their first EP “Cold Sheets” in late 2013 garnered the attention of several music industry execs, prompting the band to move from Austin, TX to Nashville, TN. The release of their debut album in April 2016, The Greatest Thing You’ll Ever Learn, reached #5 on iTunes singer/songwriter charts, placing them among some of their earliest childhood musical heroes and inspirations. The band packed their schedule with a run of at-capacity shows with acts like Robert Earl Keen and Grace Potter, as well as festivals such as South by Southwest (SXSW) and Austin City Limits Festival.

Berry was named spokesperson for the Alabama Library Association’s National Preservation Week in 2012 and 2013. In 2017, Berry was honored as the Writer of the Year by the Florida Writers Association and was named a Literary Legend by the Florida Heritage Book Festival.
