“A Place for All People” is the theme for Mayville State’s multicultural showcase. Events are planned from April 23 to April 28. All activities are free and open to the public.

Throughout the week, “A Place for All People: Introducing the National Museum of African American History and Culture” will be on display in the hallways of the MSU Education Building. The commemorative poster exhibition celebrates the open of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture on Sept. 24, 2016. Based on the inaugural exhibitions of the museum, the posters highlight key artifacts that tell the rich and diverse story of the African American experience. “A Place for All People” is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) in collaboration with the museum.
