Weaving Histories: A Collaboration for Black History Month

Weaving Histories is a week-long community collaboration to celebrate Black History Month. Activities take place at BIMA in partnership with several Kitsap County organizations including Living Arts Cultural Heritage Center, New Life Community Development Agency, Kitsap County African-American Historical Society, Emanuel Apostolic Church, and Bainbridge Island School District.  

Museum visitors of all ages will enjoy visual art displays that weave three distinct histories:

  • African tribal art and artifacts
  • Photos from documenting post-Civil War and Slavery families
