Making Black History More Accessible – Open House
August 11, from 5-7pm
The Education Committee of the Montgomery County-Radford City-Floyd County Branch of the NAACP (MRF Branch) has organized the NRV Black History Collection of books and pamphlets. The purpose of the collection is to make local African American history more accessible to the community by providing resources to local museums. The public, students, and community groups can gather to research and experience local history through this robust collection.
- 5-7pm: an open house in conjunction with its summer Membership Mingle.
- 6pm: the MRF Branch will formally present its Black History Collection to the museum, including the newly created history booklets. All are welcome for this historic community event.
This is a public event and all are welcome to attend this historic community gathering. We hope to see you soon!
Wine, cheese and crackers, and lemonade will be served.
