The Biggs Museum has partnered with University of Delaware Professor of Africana Studies Tiffany Barber to curate an exhibition of recent works by Billy Colbert of the Delaware State University Fine Art Department in conjunction with Dover’s Citywide Black History Celebration.

Colbert’s works are drawn from the theme of this year’s celebration “African American Education Under Segregation.” His exhibition incorporates rare historic video and photographs of black life in the U.S. in the early 20th century alongside artifacts of the separate and unequal educational system on loan from the African American community of Kent County. The artist and museum staff will collect oral histories on this topic during the exhibition to create an original documentary sharing memories of local segregated schools.
