1. Stories of Resistance from Black Miami (from Civil Rights to BLM). As we celebrate the Richness of Black History Month, History Miami Museum is proud to present a trio of Black History related exhibitions. Visitors will enjoy hours of learning and experiences, starting with Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow. Organized by the New York Historical Society, the traveling exhibition explores the long struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolds in the 50 years after the Civil War. Art, artifacts, photographs and media illustrate these transformative records in American history and their continuing relevance today.

2. Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow exhibition was organized by the New York Historical Society. A supplement to Black Citizenship is stories of resistance from Black Miami, a locally curated oral history project co-created by the museum and individuals involved in past and contemporary movements. It explores Black Miami’s long and ongoing struggle, resistance, and resilience in response to racial injustice through the eyes of notable Miami activists. The diversity of Miami’s Black Communities, including African American, Haitians, Bahamians, Afro-Latinos, and others, allow stories of resistance to feature culturally diverse perspectives on the trajectory of racial justice efforts in Miami from 1950s to the present.
