MD Club: What You Didn’t Learn in High School History

Reception 6:00 PM, Lecture 7:30 PM Cost: $10 (purchase tickets at link below)

Experience a dynamic evening of enlightenment and inspiration as historian and renowned art collector Bernard Kinsey takes you on a journey of discovery through many untold stories of African American history, accomplishments, and contributions. Kinsey debunks the more than 400-year-old “myth of absence” in American history, drawing from the extensive collection of artistic and historical treasures amassed in The Kinsey Collection. He reveals long ignored stories of the roles African Americans played in the making of America.

Afterwards, Professor Cliff Kuhn from Georgia State University, a noted local expert on Atlanta history joins Bernard Kinsey for a panel discussion moderated by Condace Pressley of WSB AM/FM.

Evening program also includes a reception and pre-lecture viewing of Wells Fargo’s nationally traveling exhibition The Kinsey Collection: Shared Treasures of Bernard and Shirley Kinsey, Where Art and History Intersect. The Kinsey Collection exhibition is on display at the Atlanta History Center through July 13, 2014.

      Sorry I'm just now responding. There won't be another lecture, but the exhibit is running through July. Come to the MD Live X on Jun 20th, we'll probably get another cadre to attend on the free weekend Jun 21-22. Maybe you can go then?

      I don't think so. I'm guessing at $10 it may be light refreshments.
