A group exhibit titled "Jersey Girls" will be on display from February 1-April 30, 2024 at the African-American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Center at 661 Jackson Road in Newtonville. This is the fourth time the museum has hosted a "Jersey Girls" exhibit highlighting the work of local artists.

The artwork of the women included in this exhibit represents the rich diversity of artistic talent available in the area.  

The artists are: Nastassia Davis, Kandice Fields, Jasmine Haines, Heather Deegan Hires, Randi Meekins, Glynnis Reed, Chanelle René, Sydnéi Smith Jordan, Simone and Hazel Levy Washington.
