Black History Month 2022

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

Ossining Black History & Culture: RESILIENCE. DEDICATION. EXCELLENCE.
Curated by Joyce Sharrock Cole, Ossining Village Historian, the exhibit is on display February 4 – March 12

In February 2021, Ossining was gifted a welcomed treat. The “Ossining Black History & Culture: RESILIENCE. DEDICATION. EXCELLENCE,” an ode to the African American community and its contributions. While still living through the unimaginable 11th months of the pandemic this brought a welcome distraction and a sense of pride to all. “There is an absence of documented history and love 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.” Joyce Cole, Historian
