A whole slew of events this week. Get out and enjoy.
Today from 11 am to 12:30 pm in the Community Room of the Human Services Center (Fornance and Dekalb) is the first event in a month-long Black History series. Bring your lunch and learn about Ned Hector, a free African-American teamster and artilleryman who fought in the American Revolution. He's portrayed by Noah Lewis. (Personal note-I've met Noah from doing living history at Valley Forge. He's amazing and it's worth seeing his performance.) There will be another program next Friday at One Montgomery Plaza Board Room. Same time. For info contact Turea Hutson 484-674-6562 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
