“Thus Shall They Upward, Onward Press”
An Exploration Of The History Of African Americans In Paterson From
1600-Present

Installed by the Paterson Museum in honor of Black History Month 2020, this exhibit was a survey of the accomplishments of many of Paterson’s African American citizens. The exhibit featured some familiar citizens, such as Larry Doby, but also some individuals like Dr. Norman Cotton, Minerva Miller and Henry Otis Harris, who also made an impact on our community.
