Rights and Rituals: The Making of African American Debutante Culture traces the history of social organizations such as The Links, Incorporated, the Questionettes, and the 20th Century Onyx Club, which challenged institutionalized stereotypes of Black girls. Curated by Taylor Bythewood-Porter, Assistant Curator.
