LAKE HAVASU CITY - The community is invited to join Marshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian, at the Mohave Community College Havasu campus Blg. 6, for his presentation Arizona Kicks on Route 66.

The presentation will be held Thursday, Jan. 24 from 5 to 6 p.m. with light refreshments following.

U.S. Route 66, known as the “Mother Road,” was built in 1926. It ran from Chicago to Los Angeles. During the depression of the 1930s, it became the major path by which people migrated west, seeking work, warm weather and new opportunities.

Shore shares the history of Route 66 in Arizona, including the impact it had on the state during its prime, and what happened when the interstate ultimately bypassed some of the towns that drew life from the road. This multi-media presentation includes music, video clips, still photos, and Shore’s storytelling magic.

Marshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian has a passion for uncovering the weird, the wonderful, and the obscure treasures from our past: the semi-forgotten people, places, and events that have made us who we are today. Shore uses storytelling magic, found film footage, old photographs, ephemera, and artifacts to bring our state’s heritage to life in entertaining and educational presentations.

MCC and AZHumanities partnered to provide this free opportunity for the community. The MCC Lake Havasu Campus is located at 1977 Acoma Blvd. West.
