UPCOMING EVENTS

Stone of Hope: Black Experiences in Apppleton" pop-up museum
“Stone of Hope: Black Experiences in Appleton” is at City Hall on 6th Floor from June 23 – July 20, 2014
FREE and Open to the Public

“Stone of Hope: Black Experiences in Appleton” Exhibit is a “pop-up museum” about local Black history from the 1700s to the present. Traveling for two years, the exhibit will visit area schools, churches, libraries, government buildings and community centers. By visiting numerous sites, our goal is to reach a large audience to share this marginalized history and make it part of our collective historical consciousness.

Before 1900, the Fox Cities were home to a growing Black population of Civil War veterans, small business owners and community leaders. The exhibit highlights many of these early families, including rare photographs gathered from collections throughout the United States. Most Black community members left the area by 1920 due to increasing harassment from police, racial exclusion at hotels, racial covenants barring home ownership and minstrelsy advertising and entertainment.

The exhibit also addresses Appleton’s sundown custom and racial exclusion from 1915 to 1961, and how the Fox Cities emerged from this shadow during the Civil Rights Era.
