Organizer Carver Museum & Cultural Center

Organizer of Black to the Future Bookclub - Lunchtime Series

Through the preservation and exhibition of African American material culture, history, and aesthetic expression, the Carver Museum works to create a space where the global contributions of all Black people are celebrated.

We accomplish this by telling stories about our local community and connecting those histories to larger narratives about Blackness.
