This February, Borgata is pleased to honor Black History Month with a $1,000 donation to the African-American Heritage Museum of South Jersey, which has a location at the Noyes Arts Garage in Atlantic City. Founded in 2002, The African American Heritage Museum Of Southern New Jersey’s goal is to bring to life the African American experience.
The museum features two locations in Southern New Jersey, a traveling museum with over 12,000 historical and cultural artifacts, and exhibits available for school, community and corporate displays. The museum provides the opportunity to access the history of successive generations of African Americans, while showcasing a uniquely-curated depiction of their cultural evolution.
The collection includes graphics, drawings, paintings, memorabilia advertisements, household and decorative items. In a decade-by-decade account, the museum’s permanent exhibits provide a visual and visceral understanding of how the African American culture has changed over the centuries. Additionally, the museum is committed to shining a light on local artists. It is one of the few places talented painters, sculptors, photographers, quilters and more can get hands-on gallery display experience.
In addition to the donation, Borgata team members from many different departments gathered information on Black Americans who made an impact on civil rights, politics, music, sports, education, science, and the military and created a collection of photos and bios that are posted for team members to read and learn from.
