Member Perk: Exhibition Preview: Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow

Our newest exhibition, Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow, explores the African American struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years following the Civil War. The exhibition highlights the ways African Americans advocated for full inclusion in American democracy from 1865 through World War I. Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow was created by the New-York Historical Society in collaboration with the National Museum of African American History and Culture. Atlanta History Center has enhanced the exhibition with a focus on local stories and artifacts. The exhibition features art, historical artifacts, photographs, and specially-created media pieces that illustrate transformative events in the past and their continuing relevance today.

No RSVP is necessary for this event. For more information, please email membership@atlantahistorycenter.com.
