“Black & White: Knoxville in the Jim Crow Era” exhibition guides & research
Scope and Contents
Exhibition guides for the Museum of East Tennessee History exhibit “Black & White: Knoxville in the Jim Crow Era” featuring the stories of African American artists Beauford and Joseph Delaney and Ruth Cobb Brice. The exhibit was presented as a timeline featuring selected moments from Knoxville’s history.
The exhibit was designed by Adam Alfrey and Rebecca P’Simer, with Steve Cotham and Bob Booker providing research. The exhibit was originally scheduled to run concurrently with a Knoxville Museum of Art exhibit titled “Beauford Delaney and James Baldwin: Through the Unusual Door” from February 14-June 14, 2020. However, due to the ETHC closing due to COVID-19 concerns from March 21 through August 1, the exhibit’s run was extended through February 14, 2021.
