Museum volunteers put finishing touches on African American exhibit

The Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice (SDARJ) will present “Spotlight:  The New Milford Museum African American History Exhibit” at their next town hall scheduled for Tuesday, July 12 from 7 to 8:30 PM via Zoom. The new exhibit was opened to the public on April 30, highlighting the contributions of African Americans in Milford history.

“This history needs to be preserved and it is time to recognize our shared history,” Claudia Leister, Executive Director of the Milford Museum said. “This history would be lost if we did not work to preserve the past and present everyday lives of the residents of color from Milford.”

Speakers at the meeting will include Charles Hammond, President of the Milford Museum Board of Directors. Hammond was part of the Milford Seven, the first seven African American students to integrate Milford High School successfully. Other speakers will include Nicole Rogers, Operations Director of the Museum and others who will provide oral histories of long-time African American residents.

The event is free to attend but SDARJ is asking people to register. You can sign up by visiting
