A Special Exhibition opening June 29, 2019
Discover personal stories of enslaved and free African Americans who fought on both sides of the Revolutionary War through interactive elements and compelling art displays, including a new contemporary work by nationally acclaimed artist Titus Kaphar. Follow the forgotten stories of African Americans who enlisted as soldiers for the American cause for a free and independent nation and those who joined British forces with the promise of obtaining their own freedom. Related public programs feature a series of lectures, genealogy workshops and interpretive demonstrations with re-enactors from African-American military regiments. Held in conjunction with the 2019 Commemoration, American Evolution. Made possible in part by Altria Group.
