Tomorrow afternoon, the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance‘s STAMP program, an initiative to get young people out to Philly’s cultural attractions, will host an Old City museum crawl for area teens aged 14-19.
The day starts at the National Constitution Center (NCC) at 3:30 pm. From there, teens can venture out to explore participating museums in the vicinity, which include the African American Museum, National Liberty Museum, National Museum of American Jewish History, Philadelphia History Museum and Independence Visitor Center.
This morning, the National Constitution Center, William Way Community Center, and the DMH Fund hosted a very touching private tour of their exhibit “Speaking Out for Equality” for several of the original “gay pioneers,” John James, Paul Kuntzler, Randy Wicker, and Ada Bello. William Way’s Executive Director Chris Bartlett provided a curated walk through of the moving collection at the Constitution Center, while James, Kuntzler, and Wicker gave insightful comments about the exhibit. We were there to capture some of the really wonderful moments of the event.
The rain came down in sheets yesterday starting around 5 pm, but, as if Glinda the Good Witch was overlooking the National Constitution Center, the storm ceased at the start of last evening’s Our Night Out and held off until, ironically, the end of the event. The break in the weather certainly helped produce a robust crowd to support the William Way Community Center and Delaware Valley Legacy Fund. Guests were treated to lots of tasty nibbles, plus free admission to Speaking Out for Equality. We were on hand to capture some of the evening’s festivities.
