Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow

In 2018, the New-York Historical Society launched a traveling exhibition, Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow. Now, readers can explore the virtual version of the exhibition, which details "the struggle for Black equality after the end of slavery." Visitors may want to start by reading the instructions for touring the virtual exhibition. Next, readers can use the Menu bar to explore by topic or click on the panoramic images to use the 360 viewer. In addition to blog-style text and images, the portal paints a realistic picture of a physical museum and allows visitors to zoom in and read documents of interest. The virtual exhibition was created with photographs from the Atlanta History Center, so it also features portions specific to Georgia's history. Funding was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Ford Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, Crystal McCrary and Raymond J. McGuire, and Agnes Gund. Along with exploring the exhibition, readers may want to download and use the family discussion guide and classroom materials. Both contain resources to facilitate thoughtful discussions. The classroom resource is particularly comprehensive, with more than 140 pages of materials divided into three chronological units (Reconstruction, the emergence of Jim Crow, and challenges to Jim Crow). A key feature of the curriculum is its inclusion of life stories that put names and faces to the different perspectives that shaped this history.
