American Legacy, the magazine of African-American history and culture announced today that its “Know your History” mobile exhibit will visit Mount Vernon, NY on Thursday, August 11, 2011. The mobile exhibit is a traveling museum filled with photos, stories and interactive learning stations that celebrate the African –American experience. "We're excited about the opportunity to visit Mount Vernon, NY and present this educational event which provides important information to students on our rich and noble history and culture” said Rodney J. Reynolds, founder, publisher and CEO of American Legacy.  The corporate offices of American Legacy are located in Mt. Vernon.


The 18-wheel trailer transformed into a black history museum will take visitors on a historical journey in black history through the pages of American Legacy Magazine.


The “Know Your History” mobile truck includes an exhibit of the magazines covers highlighting the depth and magnitude of African-American history and culture; “Always In Our Sight: The Fight For Civil Rights" an exhibit of artifacts and memorabilia from slavery to civil right from the collection of Gene Peters; exhibit featuring the Buffalo Soldiers, and an exhibit from American Airlines: Black History in Aviation.


"This is another giant step in the history of American Legacy Magazine where we move closer to our mission of teaching our history and helping to restore pride and self-esteem to those in and outside of our community, specifically our young people, who do not know their history,” said Reynolds.  “This unique experience will be just another approach to help them feel good about where they’ve been and give them hope on what they can achieve.”


American Legacy’s “Know Your History” Mobile Exhibit will be parked at Grace Baptist Church, 52 South Sixth Avenue, and will be open to the public from 9:00AM-5:00PM.  The tour manager is MRA Experiential Tours and Equipment of Madison Heights, MI.

 

American Legacy magazine is distributed nationwide to over 2.25 million readers through black churches, educational and cultural institutions.  Also available on newsstands and through paid subscriptions, American Legacy is owned by RJR Communications, Inc. In addition to the magazine, other brands include American Legacy’s Black History Curriculum Guide and its “Know Your History” board game.  For more information on how to purchase these products log onto www.americanlegacymag.com.
