Community Scanning Day Ad copy

GREENSBORO, NC – The Historic Magnolia House and the UNCG Museum Studies Program will be hosting a community scanning day on Sun., Dec. 8 from 1pm to 5pm at the Historic Magnolia House and from 2:30pm to 5:30pm at the Vance H. Chavis Library.

Graduate students in the Museum Studies program at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) welcome local residents and the greater Greensboro community to take part in a “Community Scanning Day.” The purpose of this event is to collect stories, images, photographs, and oral histories of any citizen’s experience with the famous Magnolia Tourist Home.

The Magnolia House was once the location of the famed tourist home during the “Jim Crow” era that was featured numerous times in the Green Book Travelers Guide as a hotel for famous African American musicians, athletes and travelers. This event will take place on Dec. 8 at 1pm at the Historic Magnolia House located at 442 Gorrell Street in Greensboro. UNCG students working on the project will also be present at the Vance H. Chavis Library to gather information from the public as well from 2:30pm-5:30pm on Dec. 8.
