Plans to Prosper You: Reflections of Black Resistance and Resilience in Montgomery County's Potomac River Valley

, Katzen Museum 2nd Floor Exhibition

Updated 4/24

The exhibition title takes its name from bible verse Jeremiah 29:11 to echo the central role of the Black church in bringing communities together, inspiring hope, and acting as a vector for social change. The goal of this exhibition is to offer a space of learning and meditation that highlights the Black history of Montgomery County and western Washington, DC and pay homage to the communities who championed fights against racial discrimination through faith, family, and fellowship. While this exhibition highlights the communities of Scotland, Tobytown, and Macedonia-Moses, we hope that Plans to Prosper You will inspire similar exhibitions and continue to prompt in-depth collaboration within and beyond these communities.
