Program Description:

Black Miami In Photographs is a photo exhibition designed to celebrate the rich history of Black people in Miami by telling a story that has become shrouded in mystery, despite Black people having played key roles in the development and incorporation of the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County. The exhibition will feature photos used in the book “Black Miami in the Twentieth Century” by Dr. Marvin Dunn. The exhibition opens February 20th at 7pm and will feature a lecture by Dr. Dunn.
