We strongly feel that cultural education and support of Black artists and activist will enrich and keep our community strong.
Some of our work :
• In partnership with Rockland Center for the Arts (ROCA) and the CEJJES Institute the "Charles White: Influences" and "See, Observe, Think, Reflect, Internalize" exhibits and other events started on April 1, 2022 and ended on June 11, 2022.
• Became a component fund of the Rockland Community Foundation (RCF). This relationship automatically makes the Gordon Center a charitable fund under the
RCF umbrella. Donations to us are tax deductible.
• Sponsored the annual Martin Luther King Center Unity Celebration. We worked with young curators to create a mini museum that showcased Charles White as well as other new up and coming artists from the Lower Hudson Valley.
• Co-sponsored the original play: “Antigone on Robben Island: Mandela takes the
Stage” with Shades Repertory Theater. This event drew 150 people.
• Continued to work with The CEJJES Institute and Society of The Arts on upcoming programs and activities.
• Financially assisted author Dr. Jeffery Perry towards the publication of his second volume on the life and works of Hubert Harrison, considered one of the greatest Black working class writers and activists of the 20th century, who, like many giants of the African Diaspora, fell into obscurity.
