Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow

Implementation of a national touring exhibition, educational programing, and a website exploring citizenship and Jim Crow laws in the post-emancipation era.

The New-York Historical Society respectfully requests a Chairman's Special Award from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support a major traveling exhibition and educational initiative titled Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow. Scheduled to be on view in New York from September 2018 through January 2019, the project will include a 3,000-square-foot exhibition, a suite of public programs, digital educational curriculum with national reach, on-site workshops for students and teachers, an illustrated publication, and a multimedia resource website. Following its run in New York, the exhibition will embark on a national touring schedule.
