The National theme for Black History Month is A Century of Black Life. We have chosen to exhibit   African American Footprints in Transportation:

We invite you to examine the impact that various modes of transportation played in the migration of enslaved Africans to freed African Americans. Sixteen 2 feet stand-up  dolls whose collaged bodies   chronicles  the arduous journey to freedom from the early national period through the twentieth century and tell the story of the African American experience gathered over  two hundred years of its existence, from  the historic contributions of  Joseph Cinque A. Philip Randolph, Congressmen Robert Smalls, Claudette Colvin and twelve other unsung heroes.
