The California African American Museum, located at Exposition Park in Los Angeles, has a full line-up of programs in 2017, from exhibits, discussions and a variety of family programs, that are free to the public.
Beginning in March, the "Can't Stop, Won't Stop!" celebrates the opening of the museum's spring exhibitions with art, music & food trucks. Later in the month, there will be a roundtable discussion exploring the role and importance of girls in the black community and beyond, with guest speakers from UCLA, the Black Lives Matter movement and others. From March through August, there is an original exhibit on the L.A. uprisings of 1992, including photographs, videos and historic materials reflecting that period.
The museum also offers several family-friendly programs free to the public, including after-school art workshops for children of all ages to engage in creative projects and learn about the artifacts on display.
Parents and caregivers with pre-toddler-age children are also welcome to participate in a stroller tour in the galleries led by museum educators.
