The John F. Kennedy Center hosts the “We Remain Here” exhibit (includes video story)

This past week, the John F. Kennedy Center hosted the “We Remain Here” exhibit by Mahogany L. Browne to remember the displaced Black and migrant communities that once lived where the center now stands. The exhibit showcases a poem written by Browne to honor these communities.

Browne traveled from Brooklyn to debut her exhibit and spread her message to the streets of Washington D.C. She advocates for unheard voices of the Black community through her many writings.

For centuries, Black communities have been forced to migrate to different areas and have slowly been replaced. Browne hopes that her poem does justice in honoring the legacy they created.

Browne plans on spreading her message everywhere she goes and highlights the importance of other communities staying informed.
