History After Hours: Liberty For All?
February 19 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm10$
Who tells your story? Archaeologists lay out the groundwork for discovering how the roots of Philadelphia’s vibrant African American community found liberty in local sites. Learn about how unexpected stories can be unearthed from places like cemeteries, buildings, maps, and genealogy through different hands-activities, gallery tours, and presenters. Join Mother Bethel AME Church and Terry Buckalew with the Bethel Burying Ground Project as they share stories of those who had been lost to time. Bring along an object to participate in a pop-up museum to display what you feel best represents your story.
Our History After Hours series features extended evening hours from 5 – 8 p.m., special themed programs, happy hour food and drink specials, and full access to the Museum’s exhibits including timed screenings of Washington’s War Tent.
