Observe Black History Month with a trip to Green McAdoo

Located in Clinton, Tennessee, the Green McAdoo Cultural Center tells the story of how on August 27, 1956, twelve young people walked into history and changed the world. They were the first students to desegregate a state-supported high school in the south. Clinton High School holds the honor of having the first African American to graduate from a public high school in the south. Plan a visit to the Green McAdoo Cultural Center and learn the fascinating history of the twelve and how they not only changed a community, but a nation.   For more, visit http://www.greenmcadoo.org/
