Part 2 is vibrant, full of color, sounds and information to awaken the senses. This new exhibit includes, everyday life, music, arts and entertainment, politics, and Blacks in the military. Teachers were invited to a preview and museum talk to discover ways to best utilize the museum with their classes.
