Bradley Academy Museum celebrates the African American female

The Murfreesboro Post, March 11, 2009

During the month of April, Bradley Academy Museum and Cultural Center will present The African American Female Experience, which is a month-long celebration of the African American female and the essence of who she is.

The African American female has suffered, endured, struggled, and overcome many circumstances and situations, and Bradley Academy Museum and Cultural Center wants to set aside a moment during their 200th year celebration to honor her, Bicentennial Celebration Project Manager Cynthia Hall said.

For two months from March 31 to May 30, Bradley Museum will show an art exhibit, U GO GIRL, which is a workshop for young girls ages 12-18 and an art contest for youth ages 1-19. All of these events will in some way pay tribute to the African American female.

The U Go Girl workshop will be held on April 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the art contest deadline for entry is 10 a.m. April 25. An awards ceremony and reception for the contestants will be at 3 p.m. on that same day.

Bradley Academy Museum & Cultural Center is located at 415 S. Academy Street in Murfreesboro. Hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and closed on all holidays.
