The King of Rock and Roll’s time in Texas is the next topic of discussion at the Humble Museum.
The Lone Star College Center for Local and Oral History presents, “Elvis in East Texas: The Origins of the King” on June 22 from 7-8 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. The audience will hear stories of Elvis’s earliest performances in small clubs and towns in East Texas.
“These performances led to his phenomenal success,” said Steve Davis, event speaker and a LSC-Kingwood history professor. “The audience will be entertained and educated. People should come to hear an important story in American history, one that very much has a local connection.”
The Lone Star College Center for Local and Oral History was established in 2016 through the LSC Chancellor’s Faculty Technology Innovation Grant. The Center’s goal is to document the local history of LSC’s service area; develop student research skills; engage the community; integrate technology into the learning process; and empower students through experiential learning. It has partnered with the Humble Museum to offer a speaker series that will create a public forum for local history and civic education.
The Humble Museum is located at 219 East Main Street. For more information, R.Chris.Davis@LoneStar.edu or visit http://www.lonestar.edu/cloh.
