“Lift Every Voice: A Conversation”

November 17, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Birthplace of Country Music Museum will host “Lift Every Voice: A Conversation” on Thursday, November 17, 6—8pm.

Join members of our community and staff in a round table-style discussion about the history of the African American community in Bristol through the mid-1900s. Participants include Dr. W. A. Johnson, pastor at Lee Street Baptist Church; Ms. Wilhelmina Banks, owner of the Nyumba Ya Tausi-Peacock Museum of African American art and artifacts; and Dr. Jerry Jones, professor at Emory &  Henry College. The conversation is part of the “Lift Every Voice” series happening this fall at the museum.

“Lift Every Voice” is a global initiative highlighting organizations co-celebrating the Grand Opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture, which showcases the depth and breadth of African American history and culture across the nation and around the world.
