– Old Salem Museums & Gardens – The St. Philips Heritage Center in Old Salem is comprised of the reconstructed the African Moravian Log Church, the 1861 brick church where the ending of slavery was announced, the African American Graveyard (Negro God’s Acre), the Stranger’s Graveyard and the Path to Happy Hill Overlook. Sit in the pews where enslaved people heard that slavery had ended; view sculpture and artwork and engage in interactive activities.
– New Winston Museum – National Black Theatre Hall of Fame & Museum Preview Exhibit – The preview will give attendees a taste — somewhat modest in scope — of what the future Hall of Fame and Museum will offer. It will feature exhibits about the founder of the National Black Theatre Festival, Larry Leon Hamlin, about Mabel P. Robinson’s long and distinguished career as a dancer, actor, choreographer, playwright and director, and about the origins of the National Black Theatre Festival in 1989.
– Delta Arts Center – On View: WE ARE THE MUSIC MAKERS – The exhibit features photo and audio documentation of Southern Roots musicians active in the past 20 years, all photographed and recorded by Tim Duffy in his quest to preserve Southern traditional music by partnering with the artists who make it. The multi-media materials will highlight questions of how poverty, geography and age have limited the exposure of these artists, causing the widespread idea that the musical traditions they perform have “died out.”
