ALBANY, N.Y. - A new exhibit detailing the struggle for black equality during the nation's Jim Crow era is opening at the New York State Museum in downtown Albany.

The exhibit titled "Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow" features eight posters with images of artifacts and documents that tell the story of African-Americans in the United States from the end of slavery with the conclusion of the Civil War through the 1950s.

The exhibit commemorating Black History Month will be displayed in the State Museum's main lobby through April 28. Artifacts from the museum's African-American history collection will be on display through March 3.

The New-York Historical Society created the exhibit, which is currently displaying a larger version at its museum on Manhattan's Upper West Side through March 3.
