DETAILS

MOHAI strives to amplify community-based organizations by hosting their exhibits here at the museum. We are proud to welcome The Unspoken Truths produced by Delbert Richardson over Juneteenth weekend. Symbolizing the African experience in Africa and in the Americas and Europe, The Unspoken Truths exhibit, includes authentic artifacts chronicling the rich history of Africans in Africa prior to American Chattel Slavery, the experiences and impact of American Chattel Slavery, the Jim Crow Era, and the many contributions African Americans have had on scientific, cultural, and technological innovations in the U.S. and the world.

Generous support for The Unspoken Truths exhibit at MOHAI is provided by Amazon.

 

On June 19th celebrate Juneteenth with a special online storytelling hour, “1619: Resistance/Resilience/Remembrance.” During the hour, Richardson will highlight the many contributions of Africans, resistance of his ancestors during the periods of American Chattel Slavery, the Jim Crow Era, and focus on the resilience of Black brilliance.
