Twists and Turns: The Story of Sokol

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.

The NCSML traveling exhibition program is generously supported by American Czech Association, Los Angeles and American Sokol Los Angeles.
