Community Spotlight: Historic museum highlights women of color

This content is sponsored by United Bank

This fall, the Charles Sumner School Museum and Archives will debut Profile Noire, a photography exhibit from award winning artist and photographer Rhonisha Franklin highlighting 100 women of color.

Franklin will also conduct monthly artists talks with some of the subjects of her exhibit focusing on the how women are seen and how they see themselves. The events are free, however advanced registration is required.

Can’t make it to November’s Artist Talk? Don’t worry, she will also conduct discussions in December and January.

The exhibit will be up until January 18, 2020.

The Charles Sumner School now houses a museum and archive for the DC public school records and artifacts. It’s open to the public Monday through Friday for free.
