WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18, 2020 SHOW HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19 VIRUS WE ARE PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING IMPLEMENTED BY THE CDC .

The health and safety of our visitors, members, staff and volunteers is our top priority. As a preemptive measure, the Black Archives Historic Lyric Theater will temporarily suspend public admission to the facility starting Monday, March 16. The Black Archives is currently evaluating all upcoming events and programs. We will be directly contacting these audiences as soon as possible. Your patience and understanding is appreciated, and we will share any additional information as soon as it becomes available.

As a trusted community space, we remain committed to following the recommendations of public health authorities. We continue to remain in close contact with all federal, state and local agencies working tirelessly to help keep us all safe. We are grateful to all of these entities for their exceptional efforts and guidance. We want to ensure the public that we will continue to provide excellent service. During this time, staff will continue to work both on- and off-site, and a dedicated custodial crew will continue to regularly clean and disinfect our facility.  Updates will also be posted to our website, bahlt.org. Should you need to contact the Black Archives during this time, please bear with us as response times may be extended during this period.  As COVID-19 continues to impact the lives of people everywhere, we know you share our concerns during these uncertain times. We urge everyone to take all necessary precautions to keep yourself and your family safe.

Thank you for your faithful support.

THE BLACK ARCHIVES
History in the Making

In 1988, The Black Archives, History and Research Foundation of South Florida, Inc. acquired the Lyric Theater. The Archives have three types of collections based on provenance:

 

  • Subject Collections 

  • Manuscript Collections

  • Black Archives Records

 

Collections created by The Black Archives to document the activities of the Black South Florida ethnic community are considered to have ethnic provenance and are called Subject Collections because they are generally formed around a subject.

 

Collections created during the administrative activities of The Black Archives have organizational provenance and are called the Black Archives Records Collections.
