Local historic churches focus of Black Archives exhibit opening Saturday
2020年欧冠赛程表The Meek-Eaton Black Archives at Florida A&M University adds to its “African-American Life and Culture” gallery Saturday with an exhibit on the black church.
2020年欧冠赛程表The exhibit features the Historic Black Churches project and models of structures from the "Hunter Hill Jr. Collection.”
Hill, a Tallahassee native and 1968 graduate of FAMU, has created 29 models of structures that include African-American homes, stores, churches and businesses.
The opening is from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Black Archives, 445 Gamble St. It is free and open to the public.
2020年欧冠赛程表The Historical Black Churches project attempts to recognize some of the oldest religious institutions in the African-American community that were established during the 19th century in Leon and Gadsden counties.
Hill says the scale model replicas are “a tribute to his parents, grandparents, relatives, and to the black people who lived in horrible conditions in the Jim Crow South.”
2020年欧冠赛程表The project identifies churches that emerged during slavery and after the emancipation and continue into the 21st century. For more information, call the Black Archives at (850) 599-3020.
