Exhibit Opening: “Emma Chambers Maitland”
February 11 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Emma Chambers Maitland embodied an experience both unique and somehow emblematic of the challenges and successes of many black women of her era – teacher, wife, mother, entertainer, sportswoman, nurse – her intelligence, ambition, and talents took her from Virginia to Washington, D. C., Paris, New York, and finally to Martha’s Vineyard. This exhibit, featuring photographs and memorabilia from her life, will give a glimpse into her journey. Join us as we unveil the exhibit.
