Description

DELAWARE BLACK HISTORY: PAST AND PRESENT
Co-hosted by Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice and CAMP Rehoboth.

This free presentation traces the history of African Americans in Delaware from the colonial era to modern times, including aspects of the social and cultural life of Black Delawareans. Several themes are examined including religion, education, Delaware’s role in the Underground Railroad, civil rights, and cultural and folk traditions.

Presenter: James Newton, funded by Delaware Humanities http://www.dehumanities.org

Please RSVP here for the 8pm program, and come early to enjoy the art exhibition and reception.

ART SHOW AND RECEPTION: VOICES THAT HAVE YET TO BE HEARD

Voices That Have Yet to be Heard, a corollary art exhibition in the CAMP Rehoboth gallery, will bring light to that which is often hidden. Delaware has a complicated heritage, one that must be told from many perspectives and a broader lens, brush or canvas. In this exhibition, artists will share their personal interpretations and bring focus to long-silenced truths, lending their voices to that which must be heard.

Hosted by: CAMP Rehoboth and the Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice

Place: CAMP Rehoboth Community Center, 37 Baltimore Ave, Rehoboth Beach, DE
When: Friday, February 8th
Art Show Reception: 6:30pm
Presentation: 8pm

ALL are welcome!

CAMP Rehoboth works to build safe, inclusive communities with room for all. Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice educates, informs and advocates for racial justice, equality, and fair opportunity. There are pieces of history we need to remember, and history we need to talk more about. Our intent through this program and art exhibition is to give voice to this discussion and, in addition, create an ongoing dialogue.
