New Artwork and the Kiwanis Club of Houma

On October 22nd, 2018, Founding Our Roots Museum President, Margie Scolby was invited to guest speak at the Kiwanis Club of Houma. The Kiwanis Club of Houma is a “global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.” It has over 15,000 clubs and 600,000 members worldwide.  The Kiwanis Club has been based in Houma since 1968.

In addition, Finding Our Roots Museum has received new artwork.

Christina Brown displayed her art piece “Broken Ballerina Girl” to the Kiwannis club. The picture below is of the descendants of Jack Conrad. They presented a piece to the museum in memory of the Thibodaux massacre, which occurred on November 17th, 1887.

Both art pieces are on display at the Finding Our Roots African American Museum!!!!
