Let your eyes, mind, and heart do the walking with fellow members of the SCCNYC community on a guided virtual tour of the New-York Historical Society’s compelling exhibition Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow. Participants may ask questions of the expert NYHS docent during the 45-to-50-minute tour consisting of art, artifacts, photographs, and media but will also be provided the opportunity to engage in a 10-to-15-minute interactive Q&A session at the end of the tour.

Originally opened at the NYHS in 2018 to mark the 150th anniversary of the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the exhibition explores the Black struggle for full citizenship and racial equality, spanning periods from the end of the Civil War and slavery in 1865 up to World War I. This period was marked by achievements of citizenship and legal equality and retrenchment to ‘separate but equal’ under the harsh backlash of Jim Crow (1877 to mid-1950s).
