Join us for our October Third Thursday Talk: “88 Years of Slavery” by Patrick Rael
The Brick Store Museum is proud to introduce its signature lecture series, the Third Thursday Talks! As the name suggests, the Museum hosts a new lecture every third Thursday of the month (except November and December), on a variety of topics. As an educational institution, it is our job to bring fresh ideas, new research, and interesting topics to the forefront.
As a special Museum Member benefit, members receive FREE admission to every lecture. For general admission, it’s only $10; light refreshments will be served during every lecture. Please continue to check this site to learn about upcoming lectures, as new topics are always being added!
