STFM Curator Chat - Saturday, March 23, 1 p.m. in Tyronza 2019-03-18

This month's STFM Curator Chat, "Beyond Tobacco Road," will examine how the Southern Tenant Farmers Union worked to counter entrenched stereotypes of landless farmers through co-sponsoring National Sharecropper's Week with the Workers Defense League. The event is Saturday, March 23th, beginning at 1 p.m. at the museum. National Sharecropper's Week was celebrated the first full week of March beginning in 1937 and later resulted in the establishment of the National Sharecropper's Fund, which is still advocating for rural communities today as the Rural Advancement Fund. The STFM Curator Chats are held on the 4th Saturday of each month at the Southern Tenant Farmers Museum in Tyronza. For more information or a schedule of topics, contact Aimie Michelle Taylor at 870-764-2274, or ataylor@astate.edu. The presentation and tour is included with the regular price of admission ($3 for students & seniors; $5 for adults; admission is free for A-State students and employees.) The STFM museum is located at 117 S. Main Street in Tyronza. Space may be limited, so please call 870-487-2909 to RSVP, or register at our Facebook event page @southerntenantfarmersmuseum.com.
