The Origin Story Of Alma Thomas
MAY 21 - OCTOBER 2, 2022
Long before Alma W. Thomas became a beloved teacher or a celebrated artist, she grew up in Columbus, the daughter of a successful business owner and an in-demand dressmaker. Her parents turned their suburban Victorian home into a center of cultural pursuits, and Thomas's family became founding members of a nascent Black middle class in Columbus. However, their lovers still faced discrimination and the threat of violence.
