With Black History Month quickly approaching, DEP will be hosting the exhibit Oh Freedom!: Blacks on the Battlefront and in the Aftermath of the American Revolutionary War in New Jersey. This exhibit powerfully portrays the role African Americans played in the Revolutionary War in New Jersey. Olivia Glenn, South Jersey Metro Regional Manager of the New Jersey Foundation and creator of the Oh Freedom! exhibit, joined Bob Bostock to discuss the discoveries of her research and the impact that this important point in history has had on New Jersey.

Oh Freedom! will be on display in the cafeteria hallway in DEP’s 401 building from January 17-30.
