Exhibitions

With education as a goal, The Kinsey African American Art and History Collection has been on national tour since 2007, and has been seen by over 10 million visitors. The collection has exhibited in 25 cities, at notable institutions such as the California African American Museum, The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (Cincinnati), The DuSable Museum of African American History (Chicago), The Norton Museum of Art (West Palm Beach), and the Smithsonian National Museum of American History (Washington, D.C.), to name a few. A portion of the collection was on display at EPCOT, Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida from 2013-2018. The exhibition made its international debut in Hong Kong, at the University of Hong Kong Museum and Gallery in 2016. Celebrities and personalities such as Whoopi Goldberg, Morgan Freeman, Kerry Washington, Katie Couric, Lance Gross, Diane Sawyer and Angela Bassett have endorsed and lent support in the exposure of the collection.

The Kinsey Collection is unique in that it is where art and history intersect, telling the often-untold stories of African American achievement and contribution through primary source historical objects starting from 1595, as well as 2 and 3 dimensional artworks from the 19th, 20th, and 21st century. The collection has been cited in 3 national awards, including the President’s National Award for Museum and Library Services.
