Our Traveling Corporate & Community Exhibits

Stealing Home: How Jackie Robinson Changed America
This popular exhibit was designed to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Robinson’s historic entrance into Major League Baseball.  It includes multiple display panels, memorabilia and video of Robinson’s highlights and post-career TV appearances.

Stereotypes:  From Little Black Sambo to Aunt Jemima and Beyond
The Gold Dust Twins,  Amos & Andy,  Buckwheat — images used widely in advertising and print media to represent black Americans by proxy and influencing the perception of an entire race.  This is an important exhibit for young people to see.  It is instructive about an era which they never experienced, yet it shows how the mass marketing of negative imagery affected generations of African Americans with repercussion that continue today.

Blackmail
Collectible postage stamps from MLK to Rosa  Parks.

Portraits Of A People
This exhibit was donated to the museum by an Atlantic City family who discovered decades-old portraits in a crawl space under the house.  These portraits, painstakingly restored by Earl K. Parker, III, provide a rare glimpse into an African American family of apparent status.

At Home:  Furniture & Fixtures of Early African American Life
From washboards, to ice boxes to cast iron small appliances to foot-pedal sewing machines.  These precious artifacts have been donated to the museum from the homes of African American families.  When visitors see this exhibit and share it with the young people in their lives, it becomes abundantly clear how far we’ve come in the space of a lifetime.

Jet, Black, Brown & Tan  
This walk down memory lane is extensive collection of periodicals of record like Ebony, Jet and others, that captured important moments in time for the African American community.
