Black history museum to visit CCU

Coastal Carolina University will present "Black History 101 Mobile Museum: The NECESSARY! Tour," a traveling tabletop exhibit depicting African-American memorabilia spanning from slavery to hip-hop, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 19 in the auditorium of the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration. The event is free and open to the public.

The museum has more than 3,000 artifacts, including original documents from historic figures whose contributions helped shape the United States. The collection includes items from the Jim Crow era, music, sports, the civil rights and "Black Power" era, and popular culture.

Khalid el-Hakim, the museum's founder and curator, will give a lecture at 6 p.m. in the Wall Building, room 317.

"My mission is to raise the consciousness of the human family by sharing artifacts that celebrate the contributions, achievements and experiences of African-Americans," says el-Hakim. "I want people to walk away as inspired as I've been as a collector and student of this history."

The event is sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Services. The Wall College of Business is located at 119 Chanticleer Dr. East.
