The Cherokee County Historical Society will be honoring Black History Month with a special history program focusing on the businesses and successes of the African-American community in the area. Speaking at this program will be Cherokee County residents Frankie Shepherd, Gordon Daniels, Bishop Charles Gearing, Nina Morris and Georgia Reed Byrd.

“This is a great opportunity for us to hear stories from the African-American community about all the great things they have done for the community,” says Historical Society Program Manager, Gabe Taylor. “Being able to highlight their stories will help people learn more about history that they may have been previously unaware. We invite the public to join us in celebrating their achievements.”

Doors for the program will open at 6:30. A full house is expected, so anyone attending is encouraged to arrive shortly after that time. The program will end at 8:30.

This event is free and open to the public. Snacks and light refreshments will be served.
