Hood Century presents Open House: Dr. Patricia Bath Residence June 21st – June 23rd, 2024, featuring guided tours, an estate planning workshop, and community events to fundraise Hood Century’s research and the stewardship of the Bath Residence.Hood Century Open House is back, y’all— Black Modernist Edition Part 2! After a sold-out weekend at the Robinson Residence back in March, we’re bringing Open House to View Park during Juneteenth for a week of programming, including eleven guided tours, an estate planning workshop around (What to do with Ya Granny’s Crib), a Black House Radio broadcast, and a private dinner, all to fundraise for the stewardship of the Bath residence, and Hood Century’s research and preservation work. The week kicks off with a broadcast on Wednesday, Juneteenth, from Black House radio. Thursday is dedicated to the city’s architects, interior designers, cultural curators, and archivists. Friday marks the start of Open House, with an extended tour and a family-style conversation in the living room led by Hood Century’s own Jerald Cooper. Saturday and Sunday each offer five, hour-long tours, providing a deep dive into the legacy of Dr. Bath (Did y’all know she was the first Black Woman with a medical patent??), the mid-century marvel that is the Bath residence, and Hood Century’s approach to reimagining what “rest” and “home” can feel like. These ticketed tours are $35-$65 and can be purchased at Eventbrite starting May 31st. All ages are welcome! For Press access, please contact Hood Century. Hood Century aims to engage Black communities in the understanding, stewardship, and preservation of their neighborhoods… to at least know your hood!!
