This summer, explore the voices, viewpoints, and experiences of the diverse people of the Revolutionary era. Inside the Museum and on the outdoor plaza, costumed historical interpreters will make history come alive through theatrical performances, dynamic storytelling, and hands-on demonstrations.

From July 7-13, join Cheyney McKnight for costumed living history programs about African American culture in early America. McKnight will offer talks on African American women’s headwraps and spiritual practices, a family workshop of African adornments, storytelling and demonstrations of African American foodways and medicine.
