Join the Southern Museum for our African American History Month Celebration on Saturday, February 19.

A special display of artifacts from the Museum collection will highlight the role Pullman porters played in railroad and labor history. Several craft activities will make connections to important moments in African American history. A movie about the African American experience during the Civil War will be shown throughout the day. A themed gallery guide will also be available. (Regular museum admission rates apply.)
