Preserving Our Historical Sites

Saturday, October 28, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Join Museum Hue on Saturday, October 28th, 2023 at the Albany Institute for Preserving Our Historical Sites panel discussion. There will be a light breakfast hour from 9:00am – 10:00am, and a panel discussion from 10:00am – 12:00pm.

Museum Hue has been working on providing programming which stems from the research, findings and recommendations in the HueArts NYS Brown Paper report, which highlights the importance of physical space and built environment for POC-led arts stability. The core of this program stems from the need for the creation of more opportunities that allow place-based POC-led arts entities to continue supporting their communities. We are focusing on Preserving Our Historical Sites for this program as we are interested in amplifying the storied history of not only NYS, but specifically the capital region.

Stephanie Woodard from the Rapp Road Historical Association will be highlighting how the Rapp Road Historical District was established and how it aligns with the Great Migration. Lacey Wilson, Public Historian of the Albany African American History Project, will be sharing insight into the project and work at the Albany Institute of History and Art. Mary Liz Stewart, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Underground Railroad Education Center will also discuss specific case studies in regards to the Underground Railroad movement and the direct ties to the Capital Region. The conversation will be moderated by Cjala Surratt, Co-Founder of Black Artist Collective. This program is free for Museum Hue Members and $10.00 for non-members.
