Black History Exhibition
The Public Service Union hall was a tour of the past as it hosted the L.I.B.R.A Foundation’s Black History Exhibition.
Displays were put up which highlighted great black leaders such as Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King Junior, Nelson Mandela and Marcus Garvey to name a few.
The exhibition promoted the achievements of great black people such as doctors, inventors and writers who made impacts on the world; for example the first man to perform heart surgery.
In addition to colored people of note, historical novels and black history books were proudly displayed.
Adding a Dominican flavor was a section of the exhibition dedicated to Dominican black history.
A traditional sensay, as it was made prior to the 1963 stood among kerosene lamps, traditional wob dwiyet and other historical artifacts.
A wooden model of a sugar plantation was on display as well as documentaries on black history were played.
