Reminder: Today marks the opening day of the Come See About Me: The Mary Wilson Supremes Collection at the African American Museum in Philadelphia. The exhibit explores The Supremes’ impact on music, women’s empowerment, African American history, American pop culture and fashion.

The exhibit includes more than 30 gowns worn by the ladies of The Supremes. Some of the gowns weighed in at 30 pounds due to the rhinestones and pearls that adorned each dress.

Also check out gold records, rare video footage, album covers and other historic artifacts that will be on display.

The exhibit runs until June 30, giving you plenty of time to explore the world of The Supremes.

Bonus, this exhibit hits right in time for Black History Month.

This exhibit is great! I attended the openning reception on Friday and had the chance to meet Mary Wilson. The exhibit gives vistiors really good insight into Black America from back in the day until the time of the Supremes. It’s a must see! 10$ well spent
