The Vancouver National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) #1139, Clark College and Clark County Historical Museum (CCHM) are excited to announce “Black History Highlights of Southwest Washington,” a panel exhibit created by the late historian and artist Claudia Starr Carter. The exhibit will be on display in Clark College’s Gaiser Hall during the month of February in honor of Black History Month. Admission is free and the exhibit is open to the public.
Formerly located in the outdoor gallery at Clark County Historical Museum, this exhibit celebrates the vital contributions and stories of Southwest Washington’s Black community. In addition to the original panels, the expanded exhibit highlights objects from the museum and NAACP archives as well as pieces by Carter.
