A museum tour preceding the benefit was led by executive director and co-founder Brenda Simmons and guests were able to see firsthand the vision of Simmons and the labor that it took to pay tribute to the contributions made by African Americans to The Hamptons…16 years to be exact.
In her remarks, Shafiroff she shared and highlighted the contributions of African-Americans made to the community of the Hamptons. “It is a privilege for me to be involved and the African-American community was instrumental to building the Hamptons to what it is today,” Shafiroff said.
The Southampton African American Museum is the first African American site to be historically designated in the Village of Southampton. Its mission is to promote an understanding and appreciation of African American culture by creating programs that will preserve the past, encourage learning, and enhance the life of the community and is definitely worth the visit.
Art lovers rejoice – exhibits are back!
