March 5, 2009 - January 24, 2010
Diverse groups of the African diaspora have come to settle, work and struggle for freedom in Miami since its incorporation in 1896 to the present day. In the process they have made significant political, economic and cultural contributions to the city. Black Crossroads: The African Diaspora in Miami explored the enduring presence and impact of African-Americans, Africans, black Caribbeans and black Hispanics on Miami.
On display in this exhibition were historic photographs, memorabilia, oral history videos, interactives and artifacts related to black pioneers, families, laborers, communities and organizations spanning the over 100 year history of black migrations to Miami.
