The Supremes "Come See About Me" Exhibit at the AAMP with Mahogany Philly!

Join Mahogany Philly for to the "Come See About Me" exhibit at the African American Museum of Philadelphia followed by lunch.  Special thanks to Mahogany Mama Tracie for suggesting and hosting this event!

Details

Nearly a half-century after American female singing group, the Supremes, conquered the airwaves and rose to international stardom, the African American Museum in Philadelphia (AAMP), in cooperation with Blair-Murrah Exhibitions, will celebrate the group’s historic imprint on American culture, women’s history, music, and fashion through a ground-breaking new exhibit. "Come See About Me: The Mary Wilson Supremes Collection" will feature over thirty of the Supremes’ most glamorous gowns.

“Come See About Me: The Mary Wilson Supremes Collection" is a showcase conceived by Mary Wilson, an original member of the Supremes. In addition to the group’s stunning gowns, “Come See About Me” will feature rarely seen video footage, gold records and album covers, historic photographs, and contemporary magazine and news articles. Wilson’s determined journey towards self-actualization—a story of universal relevance for women of all ages and backgrounds—will be a key theme of the presentation as well.

We will meet in front of the museum at 10:45.  We will enter at 10:50, so please arrive on time.

Cost

Entry to the museum is $14.  We will select a local inexpensive eatery for lunch (no more than $20)

    I unfortunately am no longer able to attend--I have a scheduling conflict with my son's swimming lesson. I hope to attend my first event soon. Enjoy all the soulful diva moments at the Supremes exhibit without me! : )

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
