The New York State Museum has announced the opening of the new exhibit “Courage: The Black Struggle for Quality Education.” The exhibition explores the visions and aspirations of leaders and parents who have sought to equitably educate Black children.
Developed by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, and on loan to the State Museum, the exhibition will be on view in the Museum’s Photography Gallery through June 2022. The Adelaide L. Sanford Institute made the exhibition available to the Museum in honor of Vice Chancellor Emerita Dr. Adelaide L. Sanford of the Board of Regents.
Before coming to the State Museum, “Courage,” which was originally developed in 2009, was updated under the direction of the Schomburg Center’s former deputy director, Kara Tucina Olidge, Ph.D., who is now executive director of the Amistad Research Center at Tulane University in New Orleans.
Located at 222 Madison Avenue in Albany, the Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9:30 am to 5 pm. For more information visit the State Museum’s website.
