HGAR’s DEI Officer Garcia Named To FDR Exhibit Advisory Council
HYDE PARK—Freddimir Garcia, HGAR Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Officer, has been named to serve on the Exhibit Advisory Council on a Special Exhibition at the Franklin D. Roosevelt President Library and Museum in Hyde Park. The “Black Americans, Civil Rights and the Roosevelts, 1932 -1962” will be on exhibit at the museum from now through Dec. 31, 2024.
The exhibit centers on the historical voices of many black community leaders, wartime service members, and ordinary citizens who engaged the Roosevelt administration directly and who pushed for progress.
Documents and artifacts from the Roosevelt Library’s holdings and from private collections nationwide will be on display. Showcasing some of the most riveting voices from its vast archives of personal letters, political pamphlets, petitions, artworks, photographs, and sound recordings, the Roosevelt Library hopes to inspire further research into key aspects of this important history.
Garcia joins 13 other distinguished committee members on the Advisory Council, including historians, writers, academics and library trustees. The library’s mission is to foster research and education on the life and times of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, and their continuing impact on contemporary life.
