Clothes Story Exhibition

As part of its recognition of Juneteenth, the Springer Theatre invites you to experience the history of fashion and the impact of style by visiting the "Clothes Story at the Springer" exhibit, opening on Wednesday, June 12 at 1:00 PM.

Clothes Story is a family-friendly experience that acknowledges and celebrates Black women through their impactful stories and the clothing they wore. The “Clothes Stories” showcase Black women, their bravery and courage, resiliency, and strength as trailblazers and leaders and the influence and impact they had within their homes and our communities. Highlighting clothing between the years of 1890-1963, the narrative incorporates historic and cultural events and fashion trends that reflect Black women’s styles and values. For details, visit
