In recognition of the 150 years since the ratification of the 14th Amendment, New York City’s oldest museum will launch a new exhibit about Black disenfranchisement and empowerment following the Civil War.
The New-York Historical Society announced the September 2018 opening of Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow today (June 27). According to an emailed statement, the exhibit will cover the years between the Civil War and World War I. It seeks to highlight how African Americans survived Jim Crow and built a resistance that led to the Civil Rights Movement.
