Museum Celebrates 3 Years
The African American Museum of Terrebonne Parish will be holding its 3rd anniversary this weekend.
This Saturday, Finding Our Roots African American Museum will have a celebration including donation of a sugar kettle, and shackles used by slaves, as well as a reenactment of a slave poem and revolt, February 8, 10:30am – 4:30pm.
“It means that we have again made it through the most trying times,” said Margie Scoby, co-founder and historian. “It’s not easy with limited resources so if we made it for three, we can make it for 30.”
Located at 918 Roussell St., the museum is housed in a historical landmark known as The Fifth District High School.
