April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and to mark that the MacArthur Museum of Military History is bringing the "Clothesline Project," T-shirts that tell stories of sexual assault, to the museum for exhibit April 11 through May 7.

This iteration of the "Clothesline Project" focuses on abuse in the military. A representative from the Arkansas Coalition Against Sexual Assault will be the guest speaker at a reception at 2 p.m. Monday, April 11. 

The Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System is co-sponsoring the display of the T-shirts, which provide a canvas for abuse survivors, both male and female, to tell their stories and bring public awareness to the issue.
