This meetup will explore the "soul" of black folk via experiences of black art, music, and culture among likeminded folk.
You should consider joining if you want to meet and engage with other people looking to spend their free time immersed in new and varied black cultural experiences, especially those dealing with black music, theater, art, activism and history.
Let's spend a Saturday morning checking out some Black history, art, & culture at the Smithsonian National Gallery of Art via the Frederick Douglass Family Materials and Oliver Lee Jackson collections.
(This is a free, family-friendly event.)
We'll MEET AT 11:00am at the start of the Frederick Douglass exhibit located inside:
the East Building, Ground Level - Study Center
We'll introduce ourselves just outside the exhibit and then move through as a group. The exhibit is temporary and on the personal and family life of legendary slavery abolitionist, Frederick Douglass. Prepare to get insight on the man behind the giant.
We'll move as a group to the "Oliver Lee Jackson: Recent Paintings" exhibit. If you aren't familiar with the Black American painter, printmaker, and sculptor, Oliver Lee Jackson. Check him out here and be inspired: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcxaJslYkXQ
Let's go be moved by the power of Black culture, and make some new friends in the process.
