Message from the President – James Roosevelt “Jack “ Hadley, Sr.

This year, December 14, 2014, will mark our 20th years, celebrating the Jack Hadley Black History Memorabilia/Museum, that was duly incorporated on December 14, 1994, as a non- profit organization, as described improvising of the IRS 501 ©- 3 Tax exempt corporation. This corporation was found by James Roosevelt “Jack” Hadley, my wife Christine Jackson, and our three children, Cathy, James, Jr. (known as Jim) and Jacqueline (known as Jackie).

During my military career, my wife and I, Chris and our three children traveled and lived at United States Air Force’s military bases throughout the United States and in several countries overseas. It was during a tour of military duty in Spain that I began the Black History Memorabilia Collection by saving newspaper articles on the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in 1968.

Jack and family left; at my military retirement in 1984 at Myrtle Beach S.C. and to right is Jim in white shirt and high school football uniform no. 34, with Sister Jackie and Cousin Emmett Robinson, Jr., at Wiesbaden Military High School in 1979.

Jack and family left; at my military retirement in 1984 at Myrtle Beach S.C. and to right is Jim in white shirt and high school football uniform no. 34, with Sister Jackie and Cousin Emmett Robinson, Jr., at Wiesbaden Military High School in 1979.

The collection grew in 1979 to include articles researched from old Ebony, Jet and Essence magazines and the books on Black Achievers. This research began as a result of little recognition and interest given to Black History Week at the Wiesbaden Military Dependent High School in Germany, where Jim attended. My son came home from school and questioned me about the school’s lack of interest in Black History Week. It was Jim’s idea that really started the collection of black memorabilia. As a result of Jack and Jim’s compilation of the memorabilia, And with the help of other military personnel, the first Black History exhibit was held at Lindsey Air Station in Wiesbaden, Germany and at Jim’s high school. Throughout my military career the Black History Exhibits traveled with us and was established at other military bases where we were stationed while in the United States Air Force.

Jim lives in Walterboro, S.C., is shown visiting his father, Jack, Black History Museum, 2012. They discussed their first black history posters which they created when he was a junior at Wiesbaden High School in Germany in 1979.

To date, the museum has obtained over 4,517 artifacts, i.e., news clipping, prints, pictures, painting, posters, books and magazine of Black Achievers’ historical accomplishments. This museum mission statement is: The Jack Hadley Black History Museum documents, preserves, and exhibits African American History of Southwest Georgia. This collection of material focuses in several areas: civil rights, education, sports, poets, writers, black women who made a difference, military, black in government, Dr. Martin L. King, Jr., a Slavery, music and many other area of African American accomplishments.

In 2013, this organization received a Museum Assessment Report (MAP) and the process caused this organization to review its mission statement that was approved by the Board of Directors as follows:

“The Jack Hadley Black History Museum, documents, preserves, and exhibits African American History of Southwest Georgia”.

Since 1995, the membership has grown tremendously, from 25 members to more than 400 members today. Over the past 20 years, the growth is the result of campaigning for an increase in membership from individuals, families, businesses, churches, and private organizations.

The organization continues its efforts to get more people (schools, churches, and families) involved with working with the organization to assist them in developing their interest in preserving and collecting artifacts of African American past and present.

Again in our Annual Report for 2013 we are presenting a more visual format to tell the story about most of the museum’s 2013 remarkable activities. We certainly hope that this report will serve as a memorable document that you will share with your constituents, families and friends.

The Museum Assessment Program of the American Alliance for Museums, approved a pilot program for the Jack Hadley Black History Museum, giving the museum a great opportunity to share in the initial implementation of having a Peer Reviewer, Dr. Redell Hearn’s to report recommendations for improvements in museum infrastructure. This pilot program provided a returned trip back to the museum by Dr. Hearn that allowed her to explain her report recommendations to staff, governing authority members, community members, conduct training session, provide strategic planning session, etc., and established a good relationship with Peer Review, by conducting a Museum Retreat Workshop with board members and staff.

Second Annual Remarkable Women Honorees

 

Second Annual Remarkable Women’s Award Program, Theme: “Women Inspiring and Innovation, Through Imagination:” Honoring eleven African-American women from Thomas and Grady Counties, during Women History Month (March) at a special banquet at Douglass Complex Auditorium. The Museum Committee defines the Remarkable Women as African American women who are positive role models, positively influences the lives of others and participates regularly in community activities. We celebrate Remarkable Women because they are beacons of light, courageous, extraordinary, nurturing, loving and spirit filled. These women go beyond the call of duty by giving back to the community while maintaining their own family responsibilities and careers. This is a cause worthy of celebration.

Museums for America a cost-share matching grant:

• Funding is requested, in the amount of $67,704 total, to hire a part-time director, part-time museum educator, and intern(s) to build capacity and strengthen the museum’s education and interpretation programs. The expected outcome is the development of engaged, motivated students who are college and career ready. Closing the achievement gap, preparing students to be college and career ready, assisting area teachers with professional development and activities linked to the state’s Common Core Curriculum are audience needs that the project will address.

National Endowment for the Humanities: Funds in the amount of $5,664 are sought to implement a project, “Preserving Our History.” It has a two part focus: (1) Implement recommendations made in a recent Collection Conservation Assessment Report and (2) Increase membership and strengthen knowledge and skills of current staff and volunteers. The goals are to strengthen the museum through the preservation of its 4,517 artifacts.

Thomasville Antiques Show Foundation, Inc.: Funding is requested in the amount of $2,364 total, to supplement its Youth Outreach Program, which will build capacity and create access to the museum, especially for low-income student in Thomas County.

Each year the museum engages in a voluntary audit to ensure that internal financial affairs are accurate and solvent. An independent auditor is hired to review our financial records, test our procedures IAW government regulations, under the IRS section, 501 © (3) and IAW with the bylaws of the museum.

Annual Funds: In addition to the Federal Grants we submit, we continue to write grants and letters to local Foundations and donors. Twice a year mail outs to donors and members are sent, encouraging their continuous contributions of charitable gifts to the museum to help cover the operating expenses. In this report, we provided our annual renew/membership form.
