Museum program on African Americans' work marks 50th year

SeattlePI.com Monday, 20 January 2020
CHICAGO (AP) — The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago is marking the 50th anniversary of a program honoring the achievements of African Americans in science, technology, engineering, art and medicine and encouraging young people to consider those fields.

The Black Creativity program began in 1970. This year's event is focused on innovation.

The program begins Monday and runs through March 1.

The program includes hands-on activities for school groups and a museum exhibit featuring more than 200 works by black artists. The museum also has scheduled a career event on Feb. 29 highlighting black artists, scientists and engineers working in Chicago.

“As an institution that welcomes so many families and students, it’s critical to highlight the African-American leaders who are creating real change in their professional fields and within their communities, inspiring young people to add their own ideas to the legacy of African-American innovation,” said David Mosena, the museum's president and chief executive officer.
