The San Diego History Center's exhibition, Celebrate San Diego: Black History & Heritage showcases the rich history of Black San Diego with community sourced fine art, Black heroes and a historical timeline.

"The exhibition really gives you a tangible, visual, graphic understanding of how complex, how deep, how interesting and how elevating the history of Black San Diego is," said Shelby Gordon, the marketing manager at the San Diego History Museum.

From photos and the stories told to fine art, many of the pieces showcased in the exhibit were items donated from the community that will be archived for future generations to see.

Gordon joined Midday Edition to talk about the exhibit and how people can contribute to the archive.
