Past Event

This exhibition highlights the voices, memories, and history of African American people who call, or have called, the Ozarks home. In 2021, the State Historical Society of Missouri was awarded an American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) grant through the National Endowment for the Humanities and Missouri Humanities for a project titled “African American Heritage in the Ozarks.” As part of the project, SHSMO staff created a smaller traveling exhibit for use by other Missouri communities.
