    Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow

    Families can navigate Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow together using an educator-designed booklet.

On weekends throughout the exhibition’s run, visitors can meet Living Historians portraying activists and famous figures from the Reconstruction and Jim Crow eras, like Ida B. Wells and Madam C.J. Walker, demonstrating their rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
