Ossining Black History & Culture: RESILIENCE. DEDICATION. EXCELLENCE.
Exhibit on display February 6 – March 12
Curated by Joyce Sharrock Cole, Ossining Village Historian
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, HistorianView Black History Month 2022 Page
