Black History Month 2021

Bethany Arts Community honors Black History Month with a series of Events & Exhibition

Black History Month

at Bethany Arts Community

Bethany Arts Community is pleased to honor Black History Month with musical performances, artists talks, art history course and an exhibition of Black History & Culture in Ossining, NY

Black History Month


Ossining Black History & Culture: RESILIENCE. DEDICATION. EXCELLENCE.

Curated by Joyce Sharrock Cole, Ossining Village Historian, the exhibit is on display February 6 – March 5

To commemorate Black History Month, Ossining Black History & Culture will honor over 190 years of economic, social, spiritual, political and education contributions made by the African American community of the Village of Ossining.

There is an absence of documented history and lore of the Ossining black community. This exhibit reveals an unseen glimpse into local black culture. Through their drive, resilience, and perseverance, the black community has been an integral component of the growth and prosperity of Ossining, laying foundations that we still benefit from today. Highlighting and amplifying their contributions (spanning two centuries), this exhibit will acknowledge the challenges they faced, celebrate their triumphs, and recognize their commitment to the Ossining community. Thought-provoking, eye-opening, and inspirational, Ossining Black History & Culture is an effort to connect, empathize, and honor the generations of black citizens that broke through barriers to benefit the community of Ossining as a whole.

The photographs and ephemera were loaned/donated by Ossining community members, past and present.

Gallery Hours:
Monday – Friday (10am-12pm & 1pm-4pm)
Wednesday Mar 3 additional evening hours (5pm – 8pm)
