Join us for this opportunity to discuss the modern-day repercussions of America’s long denial of full citizenship for African Americans.

Through September 14, CHS hosts Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow, a traveling exhibit from the New-York Historical Society. The exhibit explores the struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years after the Civil War. It explores the roots of modern-day issues such as voter suppression, mass incarceration, and white supremacist terrorism.

On June 6 and July 20, we invite members of the public to attend a special tour of the exhibition, followed by a group discussion of how the exhibition helps us to understand contemporary issues surrounding justice and equality . The tour will be led by CHS staff, and the discussion will be facilitated by staff from Everyday Democracy – learn more about their mission here.

This is a free event. Light refreshments will be served. Please let us know you’re coming by emailing Questions? Contact Adult Programs Manager Natalie Belanger at

The CHS will be closed for renovations July 1–4. We will re-open July 5 at 9am.
