Good news at Black Wide-Awake.

It’s been a good week for Black Wide-Awake.

First, though Imagination Station was closed to the general public due to the pandemic, director Jennifer Baker Byrd opened its doors to my sister, in town from New Jersey, to visit Say Their Names. Thank you, Jennifer! The museum opens to members beginning this weekend. Please consider joining, and keep an eye out for a full opening soon!

Second, thanks to Digital NC, who shone a spotlight on Black Wide-Awake for its use of materials digitized through the North Carolina Digital Heritage Center.
