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.

The new street would serve as relief from traffic to and from the interstate, to be concentrated at Fourth Street.
