The presentation of “Dr. E.E. Butler: Medical Pioneer of Gainesville and Hall County” of the Beulah Rucker Museum has been selected as part of the Demolishing, Excavating, Moving, Obliterating Project to represent the state of Georgia at the Association of African American Museums Conference in Washington, D.C., July 31-Aug. 4.
The Beulah Rucker Museum is one of four groups that will share with the audience in the 90-minute session how to save historical schools on the verge of being lost to history and promoting awareness of the contributions of important local and national figures.
The Beulah Rucker Museum, represented by Rojene Bailey, will focus on the historical figures Beulah Rucker Oliver and Dr. E.E. Butler, the historical structure, The Industrial School, while relating the importance of partnering with local museums as it has with the Northeast Georgia History Center to advance historical figures and structures to propel their legacies into the forefront of the educational spectrum.
