Lancaster’s African American citizens have helped construct the City’s buildings, worked in its businesses, entertained its residents, fought for its freedom, educated its children and lead its government and church congregations.
This exhibit features photos, documents and small artifacts that chronicle the contributions of Lancaster’s African Americans from the late 1700s to the present. The display provides a resource for all Lancastrians to learn more about the cultural, economic and educational impact African Americans have made in our community.
The Black History Month exhibit will remain on display through March 31.
The exhibit was organized by Councilwoman Wilson, the Lancaster Office of Public Art and a committee with representatives of the African American Historical Society of South Central Pennsylvania and the Crispus Attucks Community Center. This exhibit is being supported by LancasterHistory.org.
