From Negro Pasts to AfroFutures Curator-led Gallery Tour


with African American History Specialist Jasmine Smith




Join curator Jasmine Smith as she gives an in-depth tour of the exhibition, From Negro Pasts to AfroFutures: Black Creative Re-Imaginings. 


About the Exhibition:


The emergence of Afro-futurism as a relatively new construct in Africana Studies and Black History allows the Library Company of Philadelphia to pay homage to black past and show how black historical artists envisioned a glorious black future. By displaying fragments of early Black Americans’ past from their drawings, love letters, poems, songs, speeches, and protests, this exhibition will help visitors grapple with the place of black creative genius in the quest for a people’s liberation.
