“We are working with amazing local curators Tim Davis, founder and owner of the D.C.-based International Visions Gallery & Consultants, and Alana Theard, founder of the ‘400 Years of the Diaspora’ traveling exhibition, to honor the personhood and lived experience of Black people, then and now,” said Monica Montgomery, the museum’s  executive director. “Art heals and can be potentially restorative in the life of a community of people that has been mistreated and is now coming full circle to a place of pride and power.”
