Since re-opening to pubic in 2015, Sumner Hall has produced about twenty special exhibits. They have ranged from extensive, interactive offerings like The Way African Americans Worked in Kent County to a simple showcase of works by a local artist. In all cases, the exhibits reflect one of the areas our mission by:
- honoring the contributions of African Americans who have served in the armed services from revolutionary war days to the present;
- promoting an understanding of the African American experience within the overall context of American History and Culture; and
- advocating for social and racial justice in all areas of civic life.
We also have a small permanent exhibit that tells the story of the Grand Army of the Republic and the Charles Sumner Post #25 of the G. A. R.
