EntSun News/10998966
FALL RIVER, Mass. - EntSun -- Bristol Black Collective is excited to announce its selection as a recipient of the prestigious 2023 Staffing Recovery Grants from Mass Humanities, an award totaling over $1.2 million distributed among 35 distinguished organizations. This remarkable grant marks a significant milestone for our organization and signifies a pivotal step toward advancing the humanities while enriching the cultural landscape of our community.

Bristol Black Collective will harness these invaluable resources to further elevate our offerings to the community. What sets this grant apart is its emphasis on supporting staffing positions within our organization. Previously reliant on volunteers, we recognize the importance of compensating these dedicated individuals, allowing us to retain their invaluable expertise and dedication. This strategic move not only acknowledges the commitment of our team but also ensures the long-term sustainability and growth of our humanities programs and outreach efforts.

We are thrilled to introduce a new position, the "Communications Coordinator," this position presents an exciting opportunity to provide hands-on training and mentorship to high school communication students or those interested in communications, offering them a valuable avenue to gain experience, enhance their skills, and build their resumes. This position will streamline our operations, enabling us to allocate more resources to our core mission.

Among the cornerstone programs significantly bolstered by this grant is the "Black Excellence Exhibit," at the heart of our mission. This exhibit celebrates the profound contributions of Black individuals across various fields, including science, technology, art, and culture. It stands as a vibrant testament to the cultural richness and influence of Black individuals in realms such as music, literature, and the arts. The "Black Excellence Exhibit" is more than just a display; it's an educational journey designed to inspire visitors by illuminating the diverse and remarkable achievements of Black inventors and contributors throughout history. With the support of this grant, we will enhance the impact of this exhibit, making it even more engaging for our community. While a small display currently resides at the Children's Museum in Fall River, our vision is to expand its reach and influence further.
