Learn more about black history at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center

The mission of the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center is to preserve, interpret and celebrate African American history and culture in Arkansas. The museum's exhibits highlight fraternal organizations, African American entrepreneurs as well as integration.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- If you're looking for a place to learn about some black history, The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center is the place to go.

They feature historical displays all year long, but this weekend they're showcasing The Divine 9 exhibit, which are the historically black sororities and fraternities. The opening will feature a free screening of the film "Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges & Universities."

This weekend they're also inviting everyone out to learn some new dances along with hearing an African drum.

"We get to tell the Arkansas story and celebrate with great dancers, celebrate with our designers and hopefully introduce people to different cultures and ideas that we have here in the state,” Christina Shutt, Director of The Mosaic Templars said. 

You can check out the dancing and story time at 11 a.m., and the Divine 9 display at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
