Middletown's African American History on Display

The library is hosting an exhibit provided by the Middletown African American Heritage and Cultural Center in our Group Study Area (on the lower floor of the library).

The exhibit profiles 17 individuals from Middletown's African American community and recounts their contributions.  There is also a timeline that displays events from the African American experience in Middletown, the United States, and the world from 1400-2010.

The exhibit was funded by a grant from the Middletown Community Foundation and is presented in cooperation with the Middletown Historical Society.  Sam Ashworth designed the exhibit.
