A collaborative group of nonprofits will once again host Antioch’s Black History Month exhibit. The free exhibit will provide a timeline of historical events featuring art, artifacts, literature, and creative arts that reflect the African American experience in America.
The timeline will highlight the homeland of Africa, slavery, the adaptation to plantation living, the Church, the emancipation of the slaves, adaptation to freedom, the civil rights movement, and end with the historic election of Barack Obama, the first African American President of the United States.
