Savannah Exhibit Honors Musicians Union Leader

A new exhibit that opened in April in Savannah, Georgia, honors Westley Wallace “W.W.” Law, a prominent Civil Right leader, historian, community leader, and the founder of Savannah’s black musicians union (AFM Local 704). He was known for his large and diverse collection of music. Through the exhibit at the Beach Institute African American Cultural Center, the city hopes to encourage people to discover music they are not familiar with. The exhibit will feature Law’s music, book, periodical, and photograph collections. Interactive components will introduce children to math and science concepts embedded in music.
