Museums, Students, & Community Engagement

This past Saturday at the C.H. Nash Museum at Chucalissa we opened our new exhibit on the African American Cultural Heritage in Southwest Memphis, created by nine area high school students over the past couple of months.  The primary products were a 20 minute documentary and a banner & artifact exhibit in the museum.   We see the exhibit as a major step in our functioning as a true community partner and resource center for the people of Southwest Memphis.   Of course, we continue our mission of high quality educational experience on the Native American cultures of the Midsouth as well.

If you are in Memphis, or pass through, stop by and visit the exhibit.  You can watch a video with highlights from the opening here.
