Brunch for Women in Healthcare
This special brunch invites women healthcare workers for an afternoon of music, food, and celebration to honor their service in our community and highlight the legacy of “The Black Angels” as featured in the current exhibition Taking Care.
Apart Together: The "Black Angels" Nurses of Sea View Hospital examines the work, lives, and legacy of the "Black Angels," the mostly Black nursing staff at Sea View Hospital who played an important role in breaking racial barriers among the network of municipal hospitals treating tuberculosis during the mid-1900s. It is centered around the voice of Virginia Allen. Her recollections paint a vivid picture of life as a Black nurse in New York City's public hospital system in the mid-1900s.
