Cultural Preservation Event Coming To Detroit

View Comments

Sessions and workshops on how families can preserve African American items of historical and cultural significance will be held at the Detroit Public Library’s main branch.

The free daylong program Saturday is the eighth in the “Save Our African American Treasures: A National Collections Initiative of Discovery and Preservation” series.

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture says Detroit’s “significance to the history of African Americans cannot be overlooked.”

Family photographs, military uniforms, farm tools and wedding dresses are among items expected to be discussed.

Experts will meet individually with participants on caring for items, but won’t determine monetary values.
