The Ancestral Bridges exhibit is growing! 

Join us for the opening reception of the Ancestral Bridges Expanded Exhibit, featuring more photographs, objects and rare documents. Join us as we celebrate the expansion of this unique exhibition at a reception welcoming the descendants of those whose stories are featured, as well as campus and community members. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., with brief remarks at 5 p.m.

Connect with history and community while exploring the stories of Black and Afro-Indigenous families who lived and worked in Amherst from the 18th through the early 20th centuries. We look forward to your presence at this special event.

Ancestral Bridges is a first-of-its-kind partnership between Amherst College and the Ancestral Bridges nonprofit organization.
