Join us as we celebrate the opening of our newest community exhibition! “Still We Rise: El Paso’s Black Experience” highlights the vibrant history of El Paso’s Black community in the decades leading up to and following desegregation. Tracing back to the first documented African American individuals in El Paso, this exhibition highlights generations of Afro descendants’ contributions to the region as they built businesses, homes, and neighborhoods during slavery, Jim Crow era, and beyond. Based in the testimonies and oral histories of community, “Still We Rise” aims to showcase the joy and accomplishments of those who call El Paso home.

This exhibition will be on display through January 13, 2024.

Note: The El Paso Museum will extend its hours to 7PM on Saturday, February 25 for the exhibition opening event.
