The African American Heritage
Museum of Southern New Jersey
presents their traveling exhibit
A Time for Change:
Civil Rights in New Jersey
It was the tumultuous ’60s, a decade of upheaval, when New Jersey played an important part in the struggle for African American equality. Its citizens fought for racial justice and against segregation in the South, marched on Washington with Martin Luther King Jr., stood up for voting rights during the 1964 Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City and hosted the first Miss Black America pageant. Using words, images and rare film footage, “A Time for Change” tells the compelling story of an era that redefined a nation.
AAHMSNJ Founder & President Ralph E. Hunter, Sr. will be here to talk about the exhibit and answer questions.
