The Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum invites the public to visit their site during their annual African American Heritage Day, held Saturday, July 14, 2012 from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
The free, family friendly outdoor event will take place at their site on the campus of the Historic Palmer Memorial Institute. During this annual event the museum strives to recognize the history, music, dance, and craftwork of African Americans locally and throughout the nation. The event will have food, music, vendors, tours, crafts, and more. In keeping with Dr. Brown’s legacy, they hope to promote a sense of community, as well as encourage cultural support.
African American Heritage Day is part of 2nd Saturdays, a state-wide initiative of the Department of Cultural Resources to bring arts and history together at all 27 state historic sites.
