Local History Talk – The DeLand Racial History Project
February 21 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Kevin Winchell, director of community engagement at Stetson University, will share information about an interesting research project that many local organizations and Stetson students, faculty and staff have conducted through a number of sources, including newspaper articles, oral histories, the census and property records. Learn about the project and identify how we can build an accessible, centralized repository for these collections that can be used by the public. A discussion period will follow the introduction to the project. Those interested in local history, Black history, or racial justice, or who enjoy research, writing, videography or website development will enjoy this program. Free. Call 386-740-6813.
