I’m honored that Wilson County Public Library has invited me to speak again during Black History Month.
I’ll be talking about Wilson County’s free families of color. Are you an Artis, a Hagans, a Jones, a Lassiter, a Locus or Lucas, a Reid? The history of these and other free families is little known, though their many descendants can still be found across the county.
My talk is scheduled for Saturday afternoon this year, so I hope you’ll be able to make it.
Wilson County Public Library — Main Branch, 249 Nash Street W., Wilson, N.C.
