The Black Power Exhibit: The Revolutionaries, is curated by The Bolds and
produced by the Southampton African American Museum in collaboration with Innovation Charter School in
East Harlem.
The Black Power Exhibit: The Revolutionaries, is a provocative and educational exhibit that takes visitors on a
journey of Black revolutionaries and revolutions from around the world in chronological order from the 14th
century to present day.
In addition, a group of High School students from Innovation Charter School in East Harlem will be showcasing
their artistic vision of Black Superheroes. Accompanying their artwork will be a written essay about their
Superhero’s name, powers and how they use their abilities to unite, support and uplift the Black community
The Southampton African American Museum is the perfect place to host such an exhibit as it’s internationally
known for its work highlighting the Revolutionaries who paved the way for Black People in the Hamptons. Every
year, visitors from around the world come to the museum to get a glimpse of its rich and powerful history. The
Museum itself is on historic land which was once a Barber Shop, Beauty Salon and Juke Joint. It served as a
pivotal place for Black People from the Hamptons to congregate and fellowship at the turn of the 19th century.
Today it’s recognized as an historic landmark thanks to the activism of its founder Brenda Simmons.
Curators Frank Bold and Kilsi Rodriguez Bold are the founders of Bold Art Society, whose mission is to bridge the
gap between students and potential careers in the arts. They provide high school and college students with
professional opportunities in the arts.
Kilsi Rodriguez Bold has been a high school teacher for over 10 years teaching Entrepreneurship and Science. She
was awarded “Teacher of the Year” in 2022 by the NYC Department of Education for her instruction in Career in
Technical Education. She is the Director of Curriculum and Special Events for Bold Art Society. Frank Bold is the
Executive Director and seasoned playwright, producer, curator and educator in Harlem NYC. He currently
teaches the Bold Art Society High School program at Innovation High School.
The exhibit will feature interactive activities so visitors can immerse themselves in the artwork while learning
about history not often taught in schools. There will also be special programming throughout the duration of the
exhibit. Each Artist was specifically selected because of their unique styles and personal connection to the
