Save Our African American Treasures – Los Angeles

Are you going to be in the Los Angeles area this weekend?  Then you might want to check out the Save Our African American Treasures event sponsored by the National Museum of African American History and Culture.  Information about the event is below.

Have you ever wondered about the best way to preserve your family photo albums, dolls, quilts, wedding dresses and other heirlooms sitting in your attic or basement so they will last for future generations to enjoy?

If you live in the Los Angeles area, please join the National Museum of African American History and Culture this Saturday for day full of hands-on workshops that will teach you how to protect your family history. The event is in collaboration with the Japanese American National Museum and the California African American Museum.
