A Tryon Palace Trip – June 15, 2018

Join Tryon Palace as we explore the National Museum of African American History and Culture, June 15, 2018, in Washington D.C. The NMAAHC is a museum that seeks to understand American history through the lens of the African American experience. Discover artifacts from clothing with secret messages used during the Underground Railroad, to shackles used for slave auctions. The museum confronts head-on America’s history of slavery and racial oppression. While memoralizing the suffering, the museum wants even the bleakest message to have a positive message. Join us as we walk through the chronological history of African Americans, and in honoring those who fought, sang, and created.

The Tryon Palace trip includes charter-bus fare to the museum, admissions, light snacks, water, and a trip t-shirt. Tickets are limited, and cost $106.75 each. Reservations may be made in person at the North Carolina History Center, or by calling 252-639-3525.

For more information about the trip, contact Sharon C. Bryant, African American Outreach Coordinator, Tryon Palace or call 252-639-3592.
