UTICA, N.Y. – Oneida County History Center’s newest exhibit is a tribute to local African Americans and their achievements.
The "History Makers" exhibit features memorabilia from Oneida County’s first female African-American legislator, Evon Ervin; Utica’s youngest council person, Delvin Moody; and Kevin Byrd, actor and prostate cancer awareness advocate who created the Brown Byrd Foundation.
Byrd recently donated 30 copies of his book “Our Stories, Our Voices: Black Men Speak Their Truth,” which will be sold at OCHC. The proceeds will provide memberships for area families.
The exhibit will be on display in the OCHC gallery through July 30.
