New Land-New Hope: Museum

5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Location: Dakota Discovery Museum

The settling of the West is rich with stories but the characters who fill those pages are sometimes lost to history.

Dakota Discovery Museum in Mitchell wishes to bring those stories to light by celebrating the historical, political and cultural contributions of African American settlers in the Dakota Territory.

The exhibit series, “New Land-New Hope,” opens at 5 p.m., Tuesday, June 18, at Dakota Discovery Museum on the east side of Dakota Wesleyan University’s campus. The event is free and will begin in the DWU black box theatre, which is attached to the museum, followed by a program and a ribbon-cutting by the Mitchell Chamber of Commerce.
