Renew or join as a Friend of Lewis Latimer House Museum today to raise funds for the design of a new permanent exhibition! 

The new permanent exhibition's design phase will be executed over three-six months, involving a team of Black scholars specialized in 19th century African American history and history of science, museum curators, STEAM education experts, and visitor experience designers. Its vision is to engage museum visitors in re-living Lewis Latimer's unsung journey by replacing the current static exhibition panels with interactive, tech-forward displays rooted in rich historical context.

A Latimer descendant has generously offered to match your donation on a 1:2 basis. Help us reach the $20,000 goal to unlock the additional $10,000 matching funds by September 4, 2021 - Lewis Latimer's 173rd birthday.
