Black Gotham Experience intersects aesthetics and scholarship to reimagine the African Diaspora as a unified epic story through historic walks, a graphic novel series, talks, and events. We build community by connecting people to powerful stories you can experience. We make culture by engaging our community to participate in the creation of Black histories that have been missing from the world’s memory.

Our work depends on people that want to share experiences that are meaningful, enriching, and fun.

BGX Members are at the heart of our work. With BGX Membership, we build upon and extend our community making it possible to continue our work while engaging directly with you.

There are four membership types. All of them include (1) access to unique experiences through our network of collaborating organizations, (2) invitations to special previews of exhibitions, talks, and conversations, (3) access to monthly membership events, and (4) connection to a dynamic nerdy network of people like yourself.
