You're Invited to the Opening of.... Celebrating Community Service: Black Fraternal, Social and Civic Organizations of Cape May County
You're Invited to the Opening of....
Black Fraternal, Social and Civic Organizations of Cape May County
This Carriage House Gallery exhibit will explore the significance of black fraternal, social and civic organizations in African American social life. Because the African American community is often ignored by mainstream organizations, the Busy Bees, Sea Gals, Masons, Eastern Stars, Elks and the Black USO - to name a few - have emerged with the sole purpose of enhancing the lives of African Americans. In addition, black organizations can serve specific needs that only pertain to African American families. Hundreds exist nationwide with local chapters in cities and towns. The focus of this exhibit will be the black organizations of Cape May County. Co-sponsored by the Center for Community Arts (CCA) and the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC).
