On Saturday, February 15 3:00 PM, local historian, teacher, and native resident of subject location Robert E. Wall will give a presentation as part of the BCRHM Third Saturday program.
Last month we heard about the history of regional communities Harmonia and the ‘Bottoms’.
What regional location will we visit this Saturday?
Is "Little Detroit" in Calhoun County?
Did the railroad run specifically to bring black men to the area---regular commercial railroad?
Did a city in our Region have an impact by manufacturing that rivaled that of Detroit, per capita?
This is a fascinating and enlightening subject that will hold surprises for everyone in attendance.
Please come to hear about one of the most significant, vibrant, and progressive cities in our region and one of the most significant groups who made a major impact that allowed it to influence the entire state.
Come hear Bob Walls speak about the African American Presence in Albion from 1850 to 1970.
Bob's program will be held at 3:00 PM at the BCRHM, located at 307 West Jackson Street.
Admission is free, and light snacks will be served.
