Still We Rise: El Paso’s Black Experience

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 at the El Paso Museum of History highlights generations of Afro descendants’ contributions to the region as they built businesses, homes, and neighborhoods during slavery, the Jim Crow era, and beyond.

Here to tell us about the exhibition is Erica Marin, Museum Director of the El Paso Museum of History.
