Museums of the Heartland is a new television documentary series created by Lindell Singleton for Media 13. Each half hour episode is dedicated to one museum and the extraordinary passion of the curator, docents and patrons.
The first installment, premiering at Texas Black Film Festival, presents Texas Heritage Museum. This museum captures the stories of war, told eloquently through the eyes of voices of Texans -- of all races and ethnicities. From the first Texan to win the Congressional Medal of Honor-- a Black Soldier fighting for the Union army -- to the diverse narratives that followed, Texas Heritage Museum is sacred ground.
"Texas Black Film Festival applauds Lindell Singleton and Co-Executive producer Kendall Reese on the pilot episode of Museums of the Heartland. This program seeks to educate the public as to the contributions of all Texans to our society and inspire us to seek tolerance and respect for each other", said David Small, Festival Director.
"History seminally affects us and tragically drives us toward our destiny. Museums of the Heartland will find the intelligent, diverse museums protecting the stories of America and present them to this generation with knife-edged clarity, " said SIngleton.
Museums of Heartland will screen in the 6:00 to 8:00 block on Thursday, February 24. Studio Movie Grill-- Central Expressway and Royal, Dallas, Texas) is the venue for the four day festival.
