The Smith Robertson Museum and Cultural Center was Jackson’s first public school building for African Americans. Recently, there have been exciting changes within the walls of this historic building and the museum’s manager, Pamela Junior, is ready to share all the details during the seminar on Tuesday, July 29th, at Noon.
If visiting museums is on your list of “things to do” this summer, or if you are interested in the new changes at Smith Robertson, please join the discussion.
The seminar is free and open to the community and refreshments will be served. RSVP at 601-979-0883.
