Matthew Alexander Henson: First African-American at the North Pole

Matthew Henson spent years exploring the Arctic with Robert E. Peary and in 1909 he was the only other American to stand with Peary at the North Pole. Henson was excluded from receiving the many honors showered on white members of the expedition. Only near the end of his life did Henson received recognition for his remarkable career as an Arctic explorer. This exhibit is in conjunction with the AF/AM/50 celebrations, celebrating fifty years of Africana Studies, the African American Society, and the John Brown Russwurm African American Center.

Photograph by: Donald Baxter MacMillan, Matthew Henson on Deck by Sledges, aboard the S.S. Roosevelt at Battle Harbour, Labrador, September 1909. Gift of Donald and Miriam MacMillan.

Art Show Opening: Self Portrait with Secret Everything

Thornton Oaks invites the public to the opening reception of Self Portrait with Secret Everything, an exhibit by DiTa Ondek from Tenants Harbor. The reception begins at 4:00 at which time DiTa will discuss her work and respond to questions. There is no admission fee.

DiTa’s zest for life are evident in her still life room vignettes of empty kitchens and old parlors. Her work is the connection of evocative colors, unexpected patterns of light and the sublime quality of ordinary objects.
