Thank You for your support & Best Wishes for a Happy New Year! It's been a year like none other and we say Goodbye with a sigh of relief. We hope 2021 will see a renewal of the American spirit that is politically and socially inclusive with "Liberty and Justice for All."
THHF's Mural District Project is well underway and its "Wall of Healing" will highlight the pivotal presence of Black life, past and present, in the area. Its Social Justice Committee will continue its work to address issues that precipitate violence and hatred. The 2021 Tinner Hill Music Festival is also taking shape and announcements of this and other projects will be forthcoming throughout the year.
As we've said before, THHF preserves early African American and civil rights history through its unique programming that includes history, art, music and culture. It celebrates this legacy with programs and events that build relationships, promote respect and work toward understanding among all people.
Your donations have made these programs and projects possible. We hope you will make an end-of year, tax-deductible donation in support of these and other up-coming events
To learn more or to make a donation, please visit our website www.tinnerhill.org If you prefer, mail your donation to Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation, P.O. Box 6117, Falls Church, VA 22040.

For Joseph ‘Mojo’ Morganfield, making music like his famous dad is a very ‘Good’ thing

It saddens me to pass on the news that Joseph "Mojo" Morganfied. the youngest son of Muddy Waters, collapsed and died earlier today. Sincere condolences go to his family & friends. The link below is to an article that appeared yesterday in anticipation of his upcoming single release. https://chicago.suntimes.com/2020/12/8/22163203/joseph-mojo-morganfield-muddy-waters-son-music-album-chicago-delmark-records?cx_testId=8&cx_testVariant=cx_1&cx_artPos=1#cxrecs_s

The most recent of Muddy Waters’ offspring to pursue his own career in music, Morganfield has released a new single, "It’s Good to Be King," on Chicago’s longstanding independent Delmark label.

THHF preserves early African American and civil rights history. We create unique programming using history, art, music and culture to help people examine, learn from and utilize our past to address current local and national challenges. It presents and celebrates the African American legacy with programs and events that build relationships, promotes respect and works toward creating understanding among all people.

During 2020, THHF successfully completed several events including the annual Dr. Martin Luther King march and celebration, African American History Month program, the 3rd Annual Women's History Walk and the Dear Editor Contest for students. The Social Justice Committee of Falls Church and Vicinity, an initiative of THHF, presented a series of workshops dealing with "Difficult Conversations About Race." Other 2020 successes included the completion of new permanent history signage and expansion of the pollinator/Monarch butterfly garden at the Tinner Hill Historic Site. The annual music ♫ festival was cancelled due to the pandemic, but work has begun on the 2021 festival.

The highlight of 2020 was working with local citizens and the City of Falls Church on our newest initiative, the Historic Tinner Hill Mural District. The project proposes the creation of a series of exciting, large scale, unique, inspiring and educational murals, and sidewalk trails in the Tinner Hill Historic District/South Washington Street Corridor. THHF continues to work with the city and other organizations to connect and highlight our shared history.

Upcoming Events*

My apologies for missing the birthdays of our festival family & performers that took place earlier this month. Vanessa Collier & David Chappell are celebrating today. If you're going to The Birchmere to see Tab Benoit, you may be able to deliver birthday wishes to him in person (well - sort of). Lady Myrrh & Texas Fred also celebrated. You can add names in the comments.

Strathmore

Monuments: Creative Forces changes shape wherever it takes place, as Australian artist Craig Walsh works with local presenters to decide who to recognize in larger-than-life moving portraits on trees. At Strathmore, we wanted to honor artists whose work and artistic endeavors are changing the shape of our community in profound ways. Artists were evaluated by an external panel to determine the final six.

So without further ado... Meet the #StrathmoreMonuments artists: Daryl Davis Music, Marjan Naderi, Yoko K. Sen, Terron Cooper Sorrells, B.Steady, and C Brian Williams!

We are so fortunate to have worked with these artists and witnessed them in action, and we can't wait to see their monuments on Strathmore's campus.

Support for Monuments is provided by the Embassy of Australia in the United States. Special thanks to REI.

Monuments opens Friday! www.strathmore.org/monuments
