Lunch and Learn at the Mountain Gateway Museum

8 Mar 2014

Saturday, March 8th at 12pm, at the Mountain Gateway Museum in Old Fort, NC.

NC Museum of History curator Earl Ijames will be our featured speaker for this Lunch and Learn program. Mr. Ijames will talk about the museum's latest exhibit: "Freedom is Coming, Freedom for All." This exhibit examines the path from the Emancipation Proclamation to the 13th Amendment, which outlawed slavery in the United States. This is a free event. Bring your lunch. Soft drinks, bottled water, and cookies will be provided free of charge. If the weather is nice the museum grounds are great for a picnic!
