    Letters From Liberia: Jefferson County Voices 1831-1859

    The Jefferson County Black History Preservation Society and the West Virginia Humanities Foundation will sponsor a public program that explores early black history in Jefferson County using the letters and activities of local African Americans who emigrated to Liberia in west Africa. Their voices and those of other Jefferson Countians who supported them, as well as those who opposed them, speak vividly from the pages of their letters and capture the complicated political and social worlds of early Jefferson County.

    The program will be held at Fisherman's Hall, corner of S. West and Academy Streets in Charles Town, on Thursday, September 21 at 7:00pm and will include a period of discussion. Free and open to the public.
