African American Heritage in the Ozarks

May 4 – Sep 30, 2023

State Historical Society of Missouri Art Gallery

605 Elm Street
Columbia, MO 

This exhibition highlights the voices, memories, and history of African American people who call, or have called, the Ozarks home. In 2021, the State Historical Society of Missouri was awarded an American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) grant through the National Endowment for the Humanities and Missouri Humanities for a project titled “African American Heritage in the Ozarks.” As part of the project, SHSMO staff created an interactive exhibit, which is on display in the Wenneker Family Corridor Gallery through September.
