DBEN and The RMG present its inaugural partnership exhibition entitled We All Have Something Called Home from January 15 to February 3, 2018. Your history and your stories matter! In the spirit of speaking your truth, this community-sourced exhibition asks members of the Black diaspora and Afro-diasporic community to delve into their personal histories and domestic lives, revealing treasured objects and their stories. Mounted onto the walls of Gallery A, each object may be accompanied by 150 words or less, chronicling its origins and significance.

This exhibition presents a great opportunity to share objects and memories that you hold dear. Perhaps it’s a beloved photo, musical instrument, china, heirloom, garment, toy, or tool. Perhaps it is a token of celebration, a cherished memento, or a painful reminder of a lost story. We want to hear from you. We want to hear your story.
