Sokol traveling exhibit

              We will also be sharing a traveling display from the National Czech Slovak Museum, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, “Twists and Turns: The Story of Sokol”. 

Traveling exhibit from the National Czech and Slovak Museum in Cedar Rapids. It will run from Aug. 14 through Oct. 14.

Here’s a brief narrative of the display:

                             The first American Sokol unit was founded in 1865 in St. Louis, Missouri, only three years after the birth of Sokol in Prague. Gymnastics was the primary physical activity at the Sokol hall, but lectures, skits, and musical entertainment were also offered. The Sokol provided a sense of community and belonging for Czech and Slovak immigrants. This exhibit pays homage to the amazing men and women who made Sokol a part of their lives once in America.
