Tavis Smiley - America I Am Tour

Tavis Smiley has announced the tour of "America I Am" The African American Imprint. The tour will be making a stop in Phoenix on September 16. What I love the most - this is FREE. The tour will celebrate 400 years of African-American contributions to the nation through artifacts, documents, multimedia, photos and music. It is described as "a multi-sensory experience" and a "unique visitor interactive opportunity."

Tavis launched the mobile tour at the Essence music festival on the July 4 weekend in New Orleans. The African-American imprint will feature more than 150 extraordinary artifacts that will present a historical continuum of pivotal moments in courage, conviction and creativity. The Phoenix stop will happen at the African-American Multicultural Museum at 10815 North 84th Street in Scottsdale from 12:00 - 6:00 PM.

Okay - so how many other people are surprised to learn that there is a African-American Multicultural Museum in Scottsdale? Well it blew me away too. I may have to make a journey over there prior to the arrival of Tavis' tour. Hopefully I'll see you there on September 16 to welcome Tavis and to partake in this historic experience.
