Outside of the Museum..

Finding Our Roots African American Museum teaches history inside, but we must extend beyond and reach outside of the museum to teach our area’s history.

On November 7th, we were invited to speak about and teach history to 420 students of W. S. Lafargue Elementary School about black history. We shared the history of prominent people from around the Effie, Louisiana school. We also shared the history of African American music and ended with the popular song, “Hambone”.

Remember, this holiday season the museum will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day!!! Happy Holidays
