First Kansas Colored Infantry re-enactments and a living history performance will mark the closing reception Thursday, Dec. 17, for the exhibition " 'Freedom! Oh, Freedom!' Arkansas's People of African Descent and the Civil War: 1861-1866" at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center at Ninth and Broadway streets. The event runs 6-8 p.m.

“Freedom! Oh, Freedom!” gives a perspective of the Civil War from the lens of slavery, African-American soldiers and looks at the Reconstruction Era.
 
There will also be Southern-themed refreshments and a pop-up exhibit, "The Confederate Flag: Current Perspectives on an Historical Issue." The 2015 Creativity Arkansas collection will be on view as well. Also, for this night only, merchandise, which includes children's books, books by African-American authors, music, gift cards, jewelry and art, in the Museum Store will be 25 percent off. All sales and proceeds go to support the state museum’s mission.
