From The George Washington Carver Museum, Cultural & Genealogy Center:
Exhibition On View Through October 4, 2018
Produced by the Smithsonian Institute in 1975, Black Women: Achievements Against the Odds features the groundbreaking accomplishments of women who resisted oppression to ensure a more justice and equitable society for all. From civil rights icons to literary scholars, athletes, educators, entrepreneurs, scientists, lawmakers and artists; these women broke boundaries across numerous professions. Through the biographies of women like abolitionist Sojourner Truth, activist Rosa Parks, and athlete Wilma Rudolph, we celebrate these pioneers.
Today, the original panels are accompanied by updated text to better honor the legacies of these remarkable women and to trace their influence on contemporary trailblazers. Courageously, and with determination, black women set the course of history and continue to achieve today, against all odds.
Literature by and about the women featured in this exhibition are available for use in the designated reading area.
