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 29, 2014, at 12 noon in the Welcome Center. 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 us on July 29. The seminar is free and open to the community and refreshments will be served. RSVP at (601) 979-0883.
