Contributions: African Americans in the Shenandoah

January 15 @ 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Join us for the opening day of the new exhibition, African Americans in the Shenandoah.

African Americans have contributed to the shaping of the Shenandoah Valley for more than 300 years and their influence can be found throughout the MSV Collection. With art, objects, and documents, Contributions tells the stories of those who endured enslavement, resisted oppression, and achieved success. More than 40 significant African Americans in the northern Shenandoah Valley’s history—from the 1700s to today—are highlighted in the exhibition. On view through January 16, 2023, Contributions will be updated with new discoveries, ongoing research, and community collaborations.

This exhibition is made possible by the extraordinary support of the MSV Compass Society.
