Grammy, Oscar-winning artists featured in online O Museum Fundraiser on Oct. 24
Funds raised from the premiere and the online auction will go to support the Museum’s mission to address human rights, disparities, and systemic racism through education and self-empowerment programs that drive civic responsibility and heal the soul through music and storytelling.



WASHINGTON, DC.- O Museum in the Mansion, a 20th century Civil Rights site on the African-American Heritage Trail and the Washington, DC home-away-from-home of Mrs. Rosa Parks for over 10 years, will debut ‘Every Step Tells A Story,’ on Sunday, Oct. 24, 2021, to raise funds for the museum’s critical work to address systemic racism.

‘Every Step Tells A Story,’ is a behind-the-scenes look at the Museum’s work to support artists and heroes in their individual missions to advance the arts or advance human rights. The documentary features artists, performers, and storytellers, including Grammy Award winners Emmylou Harris, Ranky Tanky, Jesse Colin Young, and Chuck Leavell. The event will also feature an online auction where donors can bid on vacations, memorabilia, and even an original song created by Academy and Grammy Award winner and recovery advocate Paul Williams.

A book written by founder HH Leonards about her personal remembrances of Mrs. Parks will be published in December by R.H. Boyd Publishing Corp.

Virtual tables are available to purchase at www.omuseum.org/OTableHost. Individual tickets are also available at www.omuseum.org/everysteptix. More information about the event is available at www.everysteptellsastory.org.

“This event will promote understanding and unity through the arts,” said Ms.Leonards, Founder of O Museum in the Mansion. “From gender and politics to religion and race — the world is more divided today than ever. But arts have the power to unite people across communities and around the world — the arts can teach, they can heal, and they can change hearts.”

Funds raised from the premiere and the online auction will go to support the Museum’s mission to address human rights, disparities, and systemic racism through education and self-empowerment programs that drive civic responsibility and heal the soul through music and storytelling.

The Museum has been instrumental in the new “51 Steps to Freedom” Trail. This program combines history, art, and culture to connect prominent Civil Rights sites from The African American Heritage Trail (and other historical, religious, and cultural places) to tell the story of Washington, DC’s — and America’s — journey since 1791 for equality and representation.
