It's time to think about Travel.

National Afro American Museum offers virtual tours of exhibitions celebrating art and Black women

The pair walk through the show and share highlights about Ohio Black women who influenced arts, literature, education, science and politics.

“African American women have been American heroes,” Drodge said last fall after the exhibition opened. “We’re really looking at what it means to be an American and answering that question in a new way — I think in a more honest way — with the faces of these Black women.”

Rosa Rojas, lead curator at the museum, gives viewers an inside look into “The Art of Soul!”

Twenty-two artists from around the country were selected to be part of the juried show. This year’s theme is “impact” and explores what influences us as human beings and the impact we have on others.

The National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center in Wilberforce  is offering video tours of “Queens of the Heartland” a look at 30 innovative Ohio Black women and “The Art of Soul!” the museum’s seventh annual art show.

“I want people to think about the mark they are leaving. Every time an artist puts a mark on a background, it’s intentional,” Rojas said in October. “Then the viewer coming in is adding their own story to it from their own experiences.”

The virtual tours can be found on youtube.com by searching their names: “Queens of the Heartland” and “Art of Soul!”
