The Kinsey Collection at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, Ohio – Opening November 4th!
We are excited to announce the opening of The Kinsey African American Art & History Collection on November 4th at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
In 2007, The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center was the second museum to show The Kinsey Collection, and it is wonderful to return 10 years later. The NURFC sits on the beautiful Ohio River and is a stunning world-class museum dedicated to African American history and culture. Mark your calendars, details on events to be forthcoming. We hope to see you there.

In our mission to increase how American history is taught in California schools, we will be visiting the Imperial Valley School District at the invitation of the Imperial Valley County Office of Education for two events on October 25th and 26th, 2016. Deputy Superintendent Amanda Brooke and her amazing colleagues are working closely with us on the development of the Kinsey Collection classroom curriculum, and we couldn’t be happier to have them on the team. We look forward to meeting the parents and educators of Imperial Valley, for what promises to be two impactful events.
