The Museum’s Black Creativity program was established to present the creativity of African-American artists in various fields. Since its founding, the program has grown to focus on topics such as medicine, music, engineering, film, justice, architecture and science from an African-American perspective. This year, MSI offers a retrospective exhibition featuring hands-on activities, photographs, memorabilia and video—celebrating 40 years of Black Creativity.
