“Night at The Museum” OPENING RECEPTION – Black History & Culture: BLACK PRESENCE. PROFOUND INFLUENCE.

February 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Black History & Culture:
BLACK PRESENCE. PROFOUND INFLUENCE.

The 4th installment of this award-winning exhibit will open on February 2, 2024 (through March 8, 2024). It will expand the historic storytelling out of the Ossining borders into the surrounding communities that have impacted the world. Each uniquely themed Exhibit Gallery will highlight a particular period in American History where the black presence made a profound impact on the community. The exhibition will utilize oral history accounts and genealogical research to unearth the histories of Black entrepreneurs and Black organizations from all facets of the community’s business and social life. Programming will include a theatre production, talks, and living museum actors with events in person, online, and traveling throughout the year with the History Walls.

The exhibition will utilize oral history accounts and genealogical research to unearth the histories of the Black experience from all facets of life. A notable addition is an exhibit room dedicated to the history of the Rosenwald schools, highlighting the partnership of Julius Rosenwald and Booker T. Washington, who built schools and buildings that supported the education of Black people during the Jim Crow era.
