LIVING HISTORY

Black Belt Museum staff members provide programs that include an eighteenth-century French Marine at Fort Tombecbe, 1840s traveler and amateur Paleontologist Dr. Albert Koch, and an early nineteenth-century Choctaw woman to name a few.

Dressed in authentic clothing, staff members travel to historic sites, schools and civic organizations across the state to portray these characters and raise awareness of the unique history of the Black Belt of Alabama. The Museum staff has designed programs for fourth, fifth and tenth grade levels conforming to current State Core Standards for Alabama.  All programs use local history to help teach a larger narrative of Alabama and American history.
