SuperNatural Program Schedule:

Doors Open / Open Gallery Hour | 6 p.m.

Program Begins | 7 p.m.

Performance Art Presentation | Joiri Minaya | LEARN MORE

"For Paradise" | Elizabeth Webb (Film) | LEARN MORE

At the age of 18, Webb discovered a family history that had gone unspoken -- her paternal grandfather, whom she had never met, was African American. Her father had been passing as white and had raised his family as such. For Paradise discovers this woman’s personal history and traces the construction of racial identities within a family in which members operate on both sides of the “color line.”

"They Charge for the Sun" | Terence Nance (Film) | TRAILER

In a dystopian future where people live nocturnally to avoid the harmful rays of the sun, a young black girl unravels the lie that has kept her and her sister in the dark.

Moderated Art Talk with Audience Q&A with Maori Holmes



Gardens of the Mind: Echoes of the Feminine View features five black women artists whose work examine links between history, memory, and the natural environment. The artists, Barbara Bullock, Martha Jackson Jarvis, E.J. Montgomery, Joiri Minaya and Glynnis Reed, consider our relationship with nature and how the mind itself is a field, which is developed and nurtured to promote creative, spiritual and intellectual growth.

Exhibitions and program at the African American Museum in Philadelphia are made possible with the support of our sponsors and partners.
