Communities Foundation of Texas’ NTX Giving Day is an 18-hour online giving event designed to empower every person to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofits and causes they care about in one easy-to-use platform. NTX Giving Day is the largest community-wide giving event in the nation.
The Juanita Craft Civil Rights House and Museum is a resource for community activists and scholars. It is an inspiration for school children and visitors to Dallas. It is a cultural icon for South Dallas and a beacon to its future. With its gardens and exhibits, it is a living piece of Dallas history that encourages visitors to ‘bring your own passion’ and find themselves fueled by the life and work of Mrs. Craft.
In addition to preserving and honoring the legacy of one of its leaders, the Museum serves the South Dallas community, the city of Dallas, the state, and the nation as a record of Dallas’ role in the Civil Rights Movement through education, advocacy, and civil discourse. It is a vital bridge between the past and present, celebrating and honoring the legacy and visionary ideas of Mrs. Craft and showcasing the capacity of a single committed individual to drive deep and sustained change.
The Museum helps preserve and share the as yet incompletely told history of Dallas’ Civil Rights Movement, the power and accomplishments of its leaders and of this extraordinary woman, and the rich archives of both personal effects and public documents and materials from which her life and the history of the 20th century African American freedom movements are being curated.
