Walk into a Time Machine in AARLCC and Travel to the “Fabulous Forties” of Fort Lauderdale’s Northwest 5th Avenue
There is a certain time (the late 1940s) and a certain place (Northwest 5th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale) that have been plucked from the stream of time and preserved for one year in the gallery of the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC). This is something to celebrate! This is something to see!
"Fabulous Forties" Tour The gallery exhibit opened in November 2011 and continues to be a great hit. Here are some of the comments captured in the record book...
"Fabulous Forties" Tour
“Excellent art show. The best I’ve seen yet.”“Fantastic exhibit – I came all the way from Philly to see it.”“Words can’t explain, wow.”“Brought back lots of memories.”“Moving, wonderful, a must see. We’ll come again and again.”
The exhibit will be open through December 2012, the 10th year anniversary of AARLCC.
While visiting the exhibit, you can share your experiences, record greetings and comments via the Fabulous Forties on the Avenue kiosk. These recordings are made at low resolution for ease in automatically emailing a copy to the participants. In January 2013, the exhibit will close after a one-year run, but these memories will live on. Fabulous Forties on the Avenue Kiosk Moments
