We strongly feel that cultural education and support of Black artists and activists 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.
