Brothers and Sisters:
There are critical questions on whether the State will sell the property to the Board for a dollar, and whether the new lease should go to a board more representative and engaged with the ongoing battles for economic and racial justice. The present Board is now involved in a process of changing the exhibits at the Museum and presenting their view of our civil rights challenges and history.
The members of the Legislative Black Caucus will play a decisive role in how these questions are answered and it is important that you, their constituents, attend the hearing and let them know what you think.
Listen To The Honorable Judge D'Army Bailey On W.E. A.L.L. B.E. Radio:
The purpose of the meeting is to hear factual information from state officials about the privatization of the National Civil Rights Museum. The meeting will also afford citizens the opportunity to have their questions answered and concerns heard.
Please make every effort to attend this hearing regarding the future of the National Civil Rights Museum, a major historic site. Citizens are urged to attend this very important meeting.
Members of the Caucus look forward to seeing you on Monday, August 20th, 2007, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Labor Center, 485 Beale Street, Memphis, Tennessee.
