will provide a timeline of historical events featuring art, artifacts,
literature, and creative arts that reflect the African American experience in
America. The exhibit
also features a time line of African American history from Africa to the present
and provides an opportunity to taste traditional beverages and desserts. The
goals are to promote dignity and pride in the African American community and
provide cross cultural education for the larger community.
The Black History Exhibit is sponsored by a collaboration of
community partners: Ruah Community Outreach, Inc., Parent Partners Providing
for the Education of Young Children, the JTS Art Gallery, the City of Antioch,
and the Arts & Cultural Foundation of Antioch.
The Exhibit will provide a great educational experience for
families and elementary and high school student groups. For more
