A Journey on the Underground Railroad

In celebration of Black History Month, Massie Heritage Center’s Historical Specialists took students at Coastal Empire Montessori School on a Journey on the Underground Railroad using a traveling exhibit to place students in the middle of history with activity-based learning opportunities as they journey back in time!

This program is designed to be performed within the constraints of a classroom to meet the need for more in-school programming. The program utilizes Massie’s access to artifacts, and images. Interactive elements place the students in the role of an enslaved person traveling on the Underground Railroad. The “Underground Railroad” program was created to be annual program for Black History Month and aligns with the Georgia Performance Standards for various grade levels.

By the end of February 2016, Massie was able to bring this program into 50+ classrooms in the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System - allowing us to reach schools that would normally not have access to Massie and Massie’s resources.

In the future we hope to expand our in-school programming beyond Black History Month and elementary schools to reach middle-school and high-school students and allow for a broader depth of content and subjects.

Call Massie (395-5070) to discuss availability and to schedule a visit to your school.

 May Day Celebration

 

The annual Massie May Day celebration is just around the corner.  It will be held  May 3rd.  Did you know this is a Spring celebration that dates all the way back to the Roman Republic? It's been celebrated all over the world among many different cultures and almost always involves music, song, and dance. Here in Savannah, Massie has been celebrating May Day for over 150 years. Students from many Chatham County schools come to Calhoun Square across from Massie and perform various cultural dances to traditional music from all over the world. It is a very multi-cultural and festive experience. The most impressive dance, of course, is the May Pole dance.
