New Poster Exhibit from the New-York Historical Society "Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow"

January 25, 2019 11:09 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The New-York Historical Society has created an 8-piece poster exhibit based on their exhibition Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow, on view at NYHS until March 3, 2019. 

It recounts the dramatic, national story of the struggle for black equality after the end of slavery, and explores the years from the Civil War through World War I. 

Opening to mark the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the exhibition is organized chronologically from the end of the Civil War to the end of World War I and highlights the central role played by African Americans in advocating for their rights. It also examines the depth and breadth of opposition to black advancement. Art, artifacts, photographs, and media will help visitors explore these transformative decades in American history, and understand their continuing relevance today. Curated by Marci Reaven, vice president of history exhibitions, and Lily Wong, assistant curator.

Interested venues can be sent the digital files free of charge (eight 40" x 30" posters), and then venues may choose how to print them and where to mount them.

The NY-Historical Society is also partnering with Humanities New York who will offer Quick Grants of $500.00 to cover the costs of printing.
