Exhibit: Ossining Black History & Culture: RESILIENCE. DEDICATION. EXCELLENCE.
On display February 6 – March 5
Curated by Joyce Sharrock Cole, Ossining Village Historian
To commemorate Black History Month, Ossining Black History & Culture will honor over 190 years of economic, social, spiritual, political and education contributions made by the African American community of the Village of Ossining.
There is an absence of documented history and lore 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. Highlighting and amplifying their contributions (spanning two centuries), this exhibit will acknowledge the challenges they faced, celebrate their triumphs, and recognize their commitment to the Ossining community. Thought-provoking, eye-opening, and inspirational, Ossining Black History & Culture is an effort to connect, empathize, and honor the generations of black citizens that broke through barriers to benefit the community of Ossining as a whole.
The photographs and ephemera were loaned/donated by the black community of Ossining past and present.
