Heritage 365 and Triad Cultural Arts to Host Community Conversations on ‘Black Culture Pop Up Museum’ | Music
August 17, 19 and 28 at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts
Winston-Salem, North Carolina (Aug 11, 2021) – Heritage 365 and Triad Cultural Arts will organize three community conversations on the âBlack Culture Pop Up Museumâ on August 17, 19 and 28. Each community conversation will take place in the main gallery of the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts (251 N Spruce Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27101).
The âBlack Culture Pop Up Museumâ opened in June with âWhen the Revolution Comesâ by Owens Daniels as part of the Winston-Salem and Forsyth County Arts Council initiative to highlight social justice through the arts. Its goal is to address the lack of access to local black history, enabling black Americans to lead the interpretation of history through reflective learning and community engagement.
Tuesday August 17 at 2:00 p.m. will be a conversation about education and Black Lives Matter with participants who attended separate schools in Winston-Salem, and a special artist conversation with Owens Daniels.
Thursday August 19 at 7:00 p.m. will be a conversation about the historic black businesses, churches and schools of Winston-Salem with panelists Cedric Russell, Dothula Barron, Mark Oliver and Cheryl Harry.
Saturday August 28 at 10 a.m. will be a youth-friendly conversation hosted by Jump at the Sun, which includes a book reading and art activity with Corey the Culture Guide!
