What is the Children's Gallery of Black History?
M.O.M.I.E’s programs seek to build confidence, strengthen core academic skills, and develop leadership. One such program is the Children’s Gallery of Black History (CGBH). The CGBH is an interactive museum dedicated to “bringing history to life” for young children. As an ongoing program of M.O.M.I.E’s TLC, the Children’s Gallery of Black History offers child-friendly, hands-on exhibits that focus on great leaders of color from the past and present. These exhibits are designed to inspire children to pursue their dreams and talents despite obstacles they face. Unlike traditional museums, the Children’s Gallery of Black History encourages visitors to actively participate in the learning experience. Visitors have the opportunity to “walk a mile in the shoes of” the great person by doing the things that the great person may have done.
The goal behind the use of interactive exhibitions is to positively change or “re-image” how at-risk children are perceived and demonstrate effective ways to teach and motivate them to learn. The CGBH engages children and families in active learning about history, culture and activism through self-guided explorations.
Exhibits are designed to provide meaningful, fun, and educational learning opportunities for children by sharing a range of engaging hands-on activities that bring each Great Person's story to life. Children learn about the experiences, life stories, and accomplishments of "Great People" by stepping into their shoes! This year's theme, STANDING UP FOR GLOBAL JUSTICE DURING CIVIL WAR explores Civil War through different perspectives and stories from around the world.
Currently, the Children's Gallery Mobile Program is traveling to various educational environments throughout DC. Book the Gallery today!
