Black History Month

Black History Month

February is Black History month and we have a number of events to celebrate that. The African American Legacy at Historic Rosedale project was created in September of 2021 with the development of the African American Legacy (AAL) Committee. The committee is charged with formulating steps to expand and enhance the truthful, compassionate, and equitable presentation of the African Americans – both enslaved and freed – who lived and worked at Historic Rosedale. The project is ever evolving and will consist of exhibits and programming which will depict aspects of the life of enslaved and emancipated persons during the 19th century and their descendants during the 20th and 21st centuries. Black History Month is a great time to share the beginning of this important initiatives. Please join us for one of these events.
