James Taylor, one of JCBHPS’s founders, will show vintage photographs of schools, churches, and other structures that were significant in the lives of African Americans in Jefferson County in the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. More recent photographs will show the buildings or the sites they once occupied as they appear today.
The Jefferson County Museum invites the public to a free presentation of vintage photographs by the Jefferson County Black History Preservation Society (JCBHPS) at 2:00 pm on Sunday, October 28, 2018, at the Jefferson County Museum. The slide show and talk, African American Life in Jefferson County—Then and Now, will feature photographs from the Jefferson County Black History Preservation Society’s collection. Light refreshments will be served.
