Bev Smith and Cornelius Wright welcome Vincent Isom, director of the Atkins LLC; and students Shanika Daniels, Christina Slaughter and Marlon Williams.
A group of Indiana University students, with the Thomas I. Atkins Living Learning Center, have been studying African-American’s buried in Southern Indiana cemeteries. The bulk of their research has centered upon the black settlers who lived in Owen County, Indiana in the 1800’s.
They recently presented their progress-to-date and future plans for the project at the Owen County Historical and Genealogical Association in Spencer, IN. Joining us to talk about this and more are Vincent Isom, director of the Atkins LLC; and students Shanika Daniels, Christina Slaughter and Marlon Williams.
Headline news and local calendar events of interest to the African-American community.
