Black Families of Greenfield opening reception
About This Event
The LAVA Center is excited to present a new humanities gallery exhibit, “Black Families of Greenfield: A Brief Historical Snapshot.” The exhibit has been researched and designed by Carol Aleman, president of the Board of the Historical Society of Greenfield, and will serve as an introduction to some of the history of African-American families in Greenfield as it points to contributions in such areas as music, sports, business and military service.
The show will open at The LAVA Center on Friday, July 7, 6–8 p.m. and build slowly throughout the month. It will be on display until September. Developed from both public and private sources, it will showcase the faces, energy and achievements that helped to shape the town’s identity and creative pulse.
The LAVA Center is dedicated to drawing attention to voices rarely heard in our histories and exploring them further, strengthening and expanding our understanding of their fabric and function. Please come and view our humanities wall during gallery hours.
