Clinton House Museum has many reasons to celebrate jazz in April! Bill Clinton is widely known as a jazz lover and musician himself, so quite naturally we think we should honor that legacy during  Jazz Appreciation Month. This year we're especially thrilled to have Jim Greeson, award-winning composer and musician, perform on solo acoustic guitar at the Museum.

Northwest Arkansas Jazz Society members can get tickets for $20. All others are $25.00. Buy tickets online HERE or pay at the door! 

Greeson was a professor of music at the UA for 36 years where he taught music composition, music theory, guitar and directed the jazz ensemble. As a composer Greeson’s compositions have been heard in New York’s Carnegie Hall and published by publishers in New York, Colorado, and the United Kingdom.

Hillary Clinton received a thunderous applause and a downpour of balloons on Thursday, July 28, 2016, as she accepted the Democratic nomination for President of the United States of America. The first woman to be nominated for President by a major political party, this marks a major historic milestone in American history.
 
“And so it is with humility … determination … and boundless confidence in America’s promise … that I accept your nomination for President of the United States!” Hillary stated.
 
Her speech recounted memories of growing up and working hard for opportunities. There is no doubt that she and Bill Clinton were setting the stage for history during their time in Fayetteville, Arkansas in the 1970’s though they may not have thought so at the time. Hillary mentioned her start with Bill and how it paved the way for where she is today - “And Bill, that conversation we started in the law library 45 years ago is still going strong.”

Hillary Clinton formally nominated for President of the United States by the Democratic Party
Former President Bill Clinton recounts their time together in Northwest Arkansas

On the night in which delegates at the Democratic National Convention officially nominated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the party's candidate for president of the United States, former President Bill Clinton recalled the couple's early days, including their first house where they eventually married -- now the Clinton House Museum. 

 
By formally securing the nomination, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton becomes the first woman in the United States to lead a major party's ticket for the White House. 
 
As the keynote speaker Tuesday, Bill Clinton shared stories about their life together in Arkansas, first recounting their time in Fayetteville. Both Clintons taught at the University of Arkansas School of Law and Secretary Clinton founded the first legal aid clinic in Northwest Arkansas before Bill became attorney general. They then would go on to serve as the state's governor and first lady. 
 
In the speech President Clinton said:
“[O]ne day I was driving her to the airport to fly back to Chicago when we passed this little brick house that had a for sale sign on it. And she said, boy, that’s a pretty house. It had 1,100 square feet, an attic, fan and no air conditioner in hot Arkansas, and a screened-in porch.

On Tuesday, July 12, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed the presidential campaign of former U.S. Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, giving her an undisputed path to be the Democratic Party nominee in the 2016 general election. 

The former rivals for the party nomination spoke together in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, just weeks before the Democratic National Convention, which is being held in Philadelphia July 25-28. 

To learn more about Hillary’s early life and the beginning of her and former U.S. President Bill Clinton’s political careers, visit the Clinton House Museum.

  


President Clinton issued a statement Wednesday hours after the death of his friend, the poet and author Dr. Maya Angelou.

“With Maya Angelou’s passing, America has lost a national treasure; and Hillary and I, a beloved friend,” Clinton said. “The poems and stories she wrote and read to us in her commanding voice were gifts of wisdom and wit, courage and grace.”
Angelou read the inaugural poem when Clinton was sworn in for his first term in 1993. In his statement, Clinton described the experience as “electrifying” and said it was followed by “years of friendship.”

“I will always be grateful for her electrifying reading of ‘On the Pulse of Morning’ at my first inaugural, and even more for all the years of friendship that followed,” said Clinton. “Now she sings the songs the Creator gave to her when the river “and the tree and the stone were one.”

Clinton concluded by sending his “deepest sympathies” to Angelou’s son, Guy Johnson, and his family.

 University of Arkansas Alumni, Addie Benson (pictured on right) recently featured the Clinton House Museum in her travel blog, Old World New Girl.   Addie is a lover of architecture, sustainability, art, fashion, food, travel, and photography. She is a self-proclaimed renaissance woman and has been showing her readers the world through her eyes for two years.

From Addie herself:  Think of OWNG as one long, never ending road trip of exploring this old world we’ve inherited, but with a new set of eyes. While on this journey, we’ll photograph all that we see, especially amazing architecture and art, we’ll try delicious food and recipes. We must certainly dress our best and try not to be fashionably late. We will do this all in style while being sustainable and mindful that this is the only earth that we inherit and leave behind for the next sets of new eyes to love and explore.
