He also discusses the new expanded exhibition space, and new space for researchers and exploring Amistad Center’s book and music collection for first time.
The Amistad Center for Art & Culture is dedicated to celebrating art and culture influenced by people of African descent through education, scholarship and social experiences. Its collection of 7,000 works of art, artifacts and ephemera documents nearly the entire history of the literary, artistic, military, enslaved, and free lives of Black people in America and inspires a range of exhibitions and public programs and events. It is located in the Wadsworth Atheneum on Main Street in Hartford. For more information, go to http://www.amistadartandculture.org.
