About this Event

Virtual visitors have an opportunity to engage in a conversational journey with a museum docent.  You’ll discover how identity, politics, and creativity are articulated through African American performance, music, cultural expressions, and the visual arts. We will explore the ways African Americans have harnessed these elements to fuel social change while creating a vibrant culture that extends to the African Diaspora.

Our live, interactive conversation with a docent feature key objects from the museum’s collections and emphasizes personal stories told throughout the museum’s exhibitions. Using the online meeting platform Zoom, participants can examine and respond to objects in the museum.
