SUNY Adirondack will mark Black History Month with a one-day display of the traveling True Black History Museum on Feb. 12 on the Queensbury campus.

The True Black History Museum travels the country to teach African-American history through the use of rare and authentic artifacts. The museum’s current exhibit, “A Tribute to the African-American Journey,” features more than 150 items, including original documents from Martin Luther King Jr., Mary McLeod Bethune, Booker T. Washington, Rosa Parks, George Washington Carver, Angela Davis and President Barack Obama.

The exhibit will be on display from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Northwest Bay Conference Center in Adirondack Hall. As part of the campus stop, a representative from the museum will give a history presentation from 1 to 2 p.m.

The exhibit and presentation are free and open to the public.

The program is sponsored by SUNY Adirondack’s Social Justice Scholars, College Activities Board and Community Hub.
