The Calaboose African American History Museum (https://www.calaboosemuseum.org/about), which houses the only permanent Eddie Durham exhibit, requires help from music lovers and those who understand the importance of keeping Black American History alive, such as yourself.
Located just a few steps from Eddie Durham Park & Pavilion where the festival will take place, the museum will act as a cooling center from the outdoor heat as well as place for public educational segments to be held.
During the festival you can bring your Eddie Durham books to the Calaboose African American History Museum to get Topsy Durham’s autograph, as well.
