Vintage Visions Veterans Day Program

On Thursday, November 11, 2010 the Prince George's African American Museum and Cultural Center organized a public program in recognition of the servicemen and women from our community. The event included a conversation with active duty servicemen and veterans, including Melvin Cooper, President -- Society for the Preservation of Black Aviation History, Inc., and William Broadwater, Tuskegee Airman (US Army, WWII). The program was also highlighted by a screening of the film 'The Tuskegee Airmen' (1995). In attendance were Curator Jon West-Bey (who also served as moderator of the panel discussion), and Board Chair Hon. Lillian K. Beverley. For more information on the program itself, please visit our Vintage Visions exhibitions page.

Welcome to the Museum Blog!

Hello all, and welcome to the Prince George’s African American Museum and Cultural Center’s brand new website and blog! We’re very excited to unveil our (online) face to the world!

In our inaugural year, we’ve already accomplished an extraordinary amount. Our new gallery space at the Gateway Arts Center has been home to three professional exhibitions and a host of community events and public programs. We’ve dedicated the future site of the museum in North Brentwood, a project that, when completed, will become the centerpiece of the Gateway Arts District. And now, we’ve launched out PGAAMCC.org to further our ability to educate and inspire our community around the clock. It’s an exciting time for the museum, and we’re thrilled to share it with all of you.

What can you expect at the Museum Blog? We’ll present you with in-depth profiles of the work on display at Gallery 110. You’ll see artist interviews, read current local and national arts news, and be exposed to the latest trends in the museum field. You’ll hear from our energetic (and small) staff to learn what it’s really like on the ground floor of the museum world. Above all, this blog will give you, the reader, a deeper perspective on the work we present – before, during, and after your physical visit to our exhibitions.

The purpose of this blog is to open a continuous forum for dialogue and exchange between the museum and our community. We invite you to engage with us on whatever level you feel comfortable – through our website and blog, on Facebook, through our diverse slate of public programs and events, or by visiting our exhibitions in person at Gallery 110. We hope to see you all soon!

The Museum Team
