Farragut Museum to Host Bright Star Touring Theatre for Black History Month Celebration in February

Black History Event 2018

The Farragut Museum will host a free event in honor of Black History Month on Sunday, Feb. 25, at Farragut Town Hall. A reception and museum tours will be held at 1 p.m. with the main performance beginning at 2:00 p.m.

This upcoming Museum event will feature a performance by Bright Star Touring Theatre, one of the largest professional touring companies in the country. The production, “Heroes of the Underground Railroad”, is one of Bright Star’s most requested shows. Join Harriet Tubman, Levi Coffin, Henry “Box” Brown, John Parker and more in an empowering look at the figures behind America’s Underground Railroad. From the secret signs along routes to the abolitionist movement, this play leaves few stones unturned. This engaging production has routinely been called the “best assembly we’ve ever had” by educators across America. The performance is suitable for grade three through adult.

The Farragut Museum is committed to preserving the heritage of its East Tennessee community and features a remarkable collection of artifacts from the area, including an extensive collection of the personal belongings of Admiral David Glasgow Farragut, first Admiral of the U.S Navy and hero of the Civil War. Housed in the Farragut Town Hall located at 11408 Municipal Center Drive, the museum is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and offers free admission.
